First, time for my announcement! I was recently picked to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador!
I feel like I have #sweatpink my whole life so I am pretty excited 😉 Stay tuned for some fun stuff for all of you as well! I am truly looking forward to working with Fit Approach and helping the world #sweatpink.
As you guys know, I have a Lululemon addiction. Needless to say I made sure to visit the
mother ship Lulu store while I was in Arizona. And boy am I glad I did! I have been on the hunt for a new fuel belt for my long training runs and hadn’t found the perfect fit. Enter Lulu. Their Amphipod Hydration Belt is PERECT. Check out my vlog … and subscribe to my You Tube channel while you’re at it 😉
Can’t watch video? Have no fear. This belt is worthy of some pics as well 😉 I tested the smphipod hydration belt out on my 4 mile run this weekend. My biggest criteria was that it could carry my necessities, feel comfortable, and not bounce. The Lulu belt has some pretty awesome features to it as well!
First, there are 3 8oz water bottles attached. I tend to drink a lot on long runs so this is great for me! I was getting tired of carrying a water bottle and my last fuel belt bounced a lot. I plan on filling these bad boys with water and Nuun 😉
My other favorite feature of this belt is the built in pocket for my iPhone. I always run with my cell phone and this pouch is incredibly convenient. The other neat thing about it is that you can actually use the touch screen of your phone THROUGH the case. Awesome 😉
Another great feature … the removable race number attachments. I HATE putting safety pin holes into my clothes at races so this will be awesome come this fall! Also, I can never get my bib straight so I always look like a doofus. Hopefully this fixes that problem also 😉
Overall I am really happy with my purchase and definitely recommend this product to other runners. The belt staid tight around my waist as a I ran and the water bottles didn’t bounce. I felt comfortable wearing it and it stored all my running necessities. My only con is that the water bottles were a little difficult to get out of their holsters but I got the hang of it after a few times.
Do you wear a running belt? If so, which one do you like?
DISCLAIMER: I bought this product for myself with my own money. All opinions are my own. Lululemon doesn’t even know I exist 😉
