Running quote of the week

“Running isn’t a chore to fit in, but a privilege … I’m not trying to figure out the least I can do to keep up with my goals, but the most I can get away with.” – Jonathan Beverly

Running with the RooSport

Today's run (street) 2.5 miles

TGIF. I have no right to say that because my work week started yesterday, but I'm saying it anyway. It's been a tough week with the kids returning to school and lots of other stuff going on. I skipped yesterday's run because it didn't work with my schedule but I got back to it this morning.

Instead of using my SPIbelt, I tried the RooSport for the first time. RooSport claims that its product provides better moisture protection than SPIbelt and I was curious to see if that proved true. I had concern that the RooSport would feel awkward tucked into my running shorts, especially with a phone inside it, but it was surprisingly comfortable. I really didn't notice it was there.

I went for my run and quickly forgot I had the RooSport but later I thought to check it out of concern that it fell off. That was my own paranoia. The RooSport attached securely to my shorts using a strong magnet and it would not come loose on its own.

I ended up having a decent run and probably could have pushed a little harder than I did. Still, I beat my normal time on this route by almost 30 seconds. I checked my phone after I finished to see if it was wet from sweat. It did seem much drier than when inside the SPIbelt, but it wasn't completely dry. It was a good experience and I plan to use it on my longer runs this weekend.
