Hi everyone & Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I have a really exciting announcement today. I am partnering up with Armpocket for a giveaway next week. I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity. If you have been following my story for a while now, you know that I can’t/don’t promote anything I don’t absolutely love and use.
Armpocket is something I have been using for YEARS. Before I even knew what Instagram was (many moons ago in a dark dark time HA).
I always hated arm bands for a couple reasons: (1) they slid off my bicep, the straps were all made for men or people with bigger arms than me and (2) I had to take the case off my phone to get the phone in the armband, yeah right what a pain in a**.
So then next I tried FlipBelt and SpiBelt and those other type things. Don’t get me wrong, I do like both of those options. I sometimes I still use them for carrying fuel. But….When I race with a belt crammed full of things, it creates a bulge around my middle and makes me look like I have a pouch on my tummy! I know it sounds vain, but it is the truth lol. I’m not trying to ADD bulk to my stomach thanks very much.
I was so frustrating – like why can’t I just create a case for what I need – and then I found Armpocket. You pick the type of phone you have, then you pick the type of case you have on the phone (they even give examples so you can see which is most like yours). Then you customize the case based on how much stuff you want to put in it, how big your arm is, and of course the color.
I like the Ulta i-35 – for an iPhone with a thin case. I can fit my phone, a credit card, cash, and my car keys in it. It goes easily under a throwaway jacket when I am wearing layers before a race. I also wear it when I am lifting. That way I’m not shuffling my phone from pocket to pocket when trying to use different benches, ect.
Aren’t we so cute!? And yes, my Armpocket is under there!
Keep your eyes peeled for a Giveaway next week!
