Half marathon #2 is done! I ran it way faster than I expected. I need to learn how to not race every race LOL.
This was my first “away” race in my 13 in 79 days. It wasn’t far and we only went up for a night, but it did mean I had to pack a ton of running stuff, plus I had some work I wanted to get done in the car.
Luckily, I was recently approached by Apera Bags to review one of their bags. I tend not to do fitness activities that require a duffle or other type of gym bag, so I chose their Tech backpack. As I head out on my adventures over the next few months, I need to have my shoes and my computer with me wherever I go.
Short story: I LOVE this bag.
I put so much stuff in it this weekend.
There was a section for my laptop and my iPad, as well as a file for work, a section for my running clothes, pockets for shoes, a small top pocket for my cell and other small things (yay! I’m always losing my phone in my bag), and a few other random pockets. I even fit my foam roller in with my running clothes (and I had various options, so it was more than one outfit LOL) and I think I could have still fit in more stuff. Unbelievable!
Besides the sheer amount of well-organized space, I loved how well this bag fit me. I have narrow shoulders and often find backpacks to be too wide for me. This fit me really well, but also seems adjustable enough for a larger person to use. Great design!
Sadly, I can’t giveaway one of the Tech bags, but I can do the next best thing.
You can win their Sprint Pack bag AND a 25% off code for one of their other bags!!!
In addition to my giveaway, Apera holds their own giveaway each month. They will be giving away one free Apera bag to one winner.
