Lately I have been focusing on eating and living a healthier lifestyle. I have been an athlete for the majority of my life. My love for competing in team sports actually started in junior high school when I decided to join the track team. That then led to 4 years of track and cross country in high school. As if that wasn't enough, I also competed in kick-boxing tournaments on the weekends which is something that my dad and I enjoyed together. He was involved in martial arts for many years (at the time he was a brown belt) and so I decided to try my hand at it too. I must say that I wasn't too bad at it and won several trophies to prove it! My dad used to get a kick out of watching his baby girl fighting! LOL!
After high school, I kind of took a break from team sports but I continued to run to stay in shape while I was in college at Tuskegee University! Especially after I came home from my first semester having gained the dreaded "Freshman 15" from eating all of that fattening cafeteria food! That was a wake-up call and made me even determined not to go back to school with that extra weight on me and running was the only way that I knew how to get it off along with eating a healthier diet. Running has always been my go-to sport of choice! It not only helps me to keep my weight under control but it also helps me to relieve the stresses of life. There's something about being in the outdoors and even if the weather is bad on my treadmill, and enjoying a good 3-5 mile run! INVIGORATING!
While I am running, I always like to enjoy listening to an inspirational message or music via my iPhone which makes my run not only healthy for my body but also nourishing for my spirit. One thing though, it has been a bit of a struggle trying to find just the right device to help me keep my phone protected and stationary while I run. So, when I recently came across the iArrow Sports Armband for iPhone 5, I was excited to give it a try! Now mind you, I have been a runner for years which means that I have used many different sports armband products that left me dissatisfied. But not so with this product! Let me just tell you that I absolutely love this product! It was so easy to strap on and I didn't have to mess with it at all during my 5 mile morning run and my phone was well protected. Not only did I enjoy the run more because I didn't have to worry about the stability of my phone, but it encouraged me to want to tell other runners about this great product!
