With as many accessories as there are for runners, most people find it difficult to choose the ones they will use day in and day out. Things get even crazier when you are testing gear and gadgets for a blog, but Meagan and I have one accessory that has made an appearance in all of our races and roughly 80% of our training runs–the SPIbelt.

Vollusion_Welcome

After searching far and wide for the best option in regards to running with an iPod/iPhone/Droid/Walkman (only some of our audience will get that reference), we came across one of our best investments to date.  I know most people would tell you to just go for the first armband you can find at your local Apple Store, but I’m here to tell you something wildly different: fanny packs are back and are better than ever!  For those of you who have run with an armband you can probably relate when I say, “Armbands suck”!
