New Gear - Running LED Light Running Belt

I have a fun new goodie that I am very thankful get to try out.

Its a Running LED Light Running Belt from my friends at Level Up Runs. I am so excited about this running belt because it fits my iPhone 6. The pocket is bigger then it looks in person, but when I start stuffing stuff into it - I can fit in a lot of stuff in something that looks so small. 

The LED light strip is nice and bright and very easy to turn on and off. I picked the red but there are 4 colors to choose from. I'm excited to wear this during the Auger Falls Full Moon Trail run this month and next, along with an evening race this weekend. Also, since I have been playing PokemanGo, this is perfect when doing some of the night time walks around the city. I already have the glow of the cell phone, but for extra saftey, the belt lit up really makes me seen!

When Was The Last Time I Read A Book?

This post is sponsored by Spartan Race and no other compensation has been given. 

Seriously here. Since I work from home, reading just became something that wasn't as important to me. I enjoyed reading during my lunches and work breaks, I think I was plowing through a book a week for a while there. Add that to moving to Po'Dunk Idaho where the library really sucks. Every book I have searched for isn't available. :-(

One of the factors that influenced my decision to upgrade my ghetto iPhone4 after 5ish years is that I can't read ebooks on it because of the apps wouldn't work. My phone was too old and Apple is a jerk. Ignore the fact that my MIL has a 3 year old iPad that has only been used a handful of times that I could have put the ereader app on. But that's another story...

Well, this week, I'm making up for lost reading time. I've read 2 books and starting a 3rd today!

I was able to get a copy of a book I already had - silly but its in storage so …

Twin Falls Firecracker 5K

I did a Thursday evening 5K. The Twin Falls Firecracker 5K. I kinda like this race. I placed in my AG last year but no way was that happening this year.

As soon as the race started it started raining. It was a very windy and wet run.

I Periscope'ed the whole thing! I just upgraded my iphone 4. Yes I had a podunk iphone4 for 5 years. I couldn't periscope anything with it so it had to wait until I eventually got around to a phone upgrade. Am I too late to the whole Periscope thing? I don't wanna Snapchat.

Screen shots from Periscope above. The first mile kinda sucked. Like I said, the rain started as soon as the race started. I'm such a fair weather runner that I can't tell you the last time I ran in the rain. Maybe the Seattle Marathon in 2011? I'm a weather wuss. Anyways, since it was still warm out, I just went with it. Having my phone out was cool because it was such a distraction from how hard the wind was blowing and how much I couldn't see because of …
