Hey Michael, thanks for the add.
I saw your comment about the spi belt & I'm going to check right now to see if I can buy one somewhere around here (rather than ordering it) because I signed up for the D.C. Half which is SATURDAY (yikes!!) and the forecast is for the 70s, so I can't wear the jacket with all the pockets I was planning on!! Sheesh.
Did you find that the Spi belt was pretty good about staying put/not bouncing? That's my main reason for not using something like that...
Thanks again & good luck with your next race. :)
GREAT JOB on your race!!! Awesome that you came in under time and manged the BGs so well. Go for the 1/2 next, for sure. (Does your wife run, too?? do the 1/2 together---even better!!!). Have a great week. :)
