I submitted by Gym Bag Must Haves to @NikeWomen on twitter and won this sweet bag! It was perfect timing as the Nike Women’s Marathon is 33 days away and I needed a bag as my carry-on because my old bag is on it’s final days. We had a good run, this bag has brought me through every day of PE, all of our flights, weekend get-aways, and 1/2 marathons. This is a big moment for my brown bag…I am not sure that it will handle retirement well as it was replaced by a new, rockin’ bag with an attitude.
Retirement aside, I love the appearance of the Livestrong Girl Varisty 2.0 bag that I got in Blue Glow/Aura/Solar Red the color is bright and the solar red looks close to hot pink with silver and bright blue. I am most impressed with the pockets. I know that some of my old track duffle bags in high school were literally 1 open compartment. This bag has the side mesh with a zip pull, inside zippered pocket, and my favorite part :: the side shoe compartment that goes into the bag about 8 inches. Check it out below. I use this side shoe compartment for dirty clothes and my muddy running shoes.
One of my other favorite parts is the padded back panel and shoulder strap. This is perfect for traveling when this bag is loaded and I need that extra soft layer against my hip and shoulder.
This bag also includes 2 headbands… Bonus!
When I am flying to the Nike Women’s Marathon, I am for sure bringing this bag and putting my marathon clothes, nutrition, empty water bottles, and running shoes in this bag and not checking it below the plane. The airlines are not going to be lose this bag and its precious cargo!
Get it, love it, use it, set a goal and train for it! #MakeYourself
