I haven’t tried anything new this year but am very excited to try two new products on Sunday for my race. I know, I know, I am not supposed to try anything new on race day. It is going to be HOT on Sunday so I am planning to do this race as a training run. No pressure. I like it! 🙂
• BibBoards – I always use my Fitletic belt in a race. It has pockets to hold my ID and gel. It also has toggles for my bib. I first heard about BibBoards as a BibRave Pro but was not interested in trying them out. Now a few months later I am interested. There is a great sale going on right now and I purchased two sets for $8.99 each (regular price is $16.99). How do these work? BibBoards are bib fasteners. “BibBoards have a flat smooth surface that will not chafe. A second piece works by pushing part of the garment into a recess, providing a secure fit. When the event is over, they pop off. BibBoards can be reused, and their special shape holds down a bib MORE secure than without the fuss or holes.” (Source: https://bibboards.com/) The nice thing about these is that you don’t need safety pins hence no holes in your race shirt. There are so many different and fun designs to pick from. I had a hard time deciding but ended up buying the two below.
• Koala Clip – Another new item I am excited to try out is the Koala Clip. It is a pouch that holds your phone, keys, ID, etc. It has a magnetic clip that you clip inside your sports bra. The Koala Clip does not chafe nor does it bounce. It also keeps the items inside dry so no worries if you get wet. I’ve heard so many great things about it and cannot wait to get it. I ordered it Sunday night, was shipped on Monday and should get it on Thursday. The blue one is the one I ordered. Check out the video to learn more about it!
Have you tried any of these products? Thoughts?
