LED Light Running Belt Review + Discount

DSC_0042cropI have to admit, I wasn't really in the market for a new running belt, I have a flip belt that I had been using quite successfully.  When Level Up Runs reached out regarding their LED Light Running Belt, I was intrigued by the idea of a belt with lights.

The first thing I did when the belt came, was to see if my phone fit. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I keep it in an Otterbox, I was please to see that my phone fit in the pouch, including the case with room to spare! It is hard finding something that will accommodate a large phone.

This belt seems to be well made and able to hold up to the toughest workout. The belt material is wide and made out of elastic material, you can adjust it easily on both sides so that the pocket stays in front and the clasp stays in back.  The pocket material is waterproof... no more sweaty phone when I am finished with my run! I haven't been able to test it on a rainy run yet.  The LED light control is housed in it's own little pocket on the inside, the control itself is encased in a silicone type plastic cover.

The first time I ran with this belt was during the Baytown Bud Heat Wave. I broke the rule about nothing new on race day, and am happy to report I put it on and basically forgot about it until the race was over and I needed to take my phone out.  I carried my phone, lip balm, ID and car key in the pocket.

I have taken it out on 5 runs so far, and it is holding up great.  It has become my "go to" running belt.  I have found that it stays put, doesn't bounce and is low profile. I don't run much at night, but I did take it out for a walk at dusk and used the LED lights, they are bright!

I give this belt a thumbs up and would recommend it!

This belt is being sold only on Amazon (and is Prime eligible) for $15.20.  You can get 50% off by using code RCE5FGY8 at checkout.

NOTE: I received a complimentary running belt from Level Up Runs in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!



The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.



I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo


The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
Pre-race...
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.



After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!



I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
