Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Gary
I love running trails, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking and pretty much anything else that takes me away from civilization. I love to get dirty, the muddier the better! I like to see where my own body takes me. I prefer camping over hotels. I prefer trees over buildings. I prefer woods over towns. I prefer time with my dog Traildog Sparta over everyone else, except my family of course (wink wink). I trekked to Everest Base Camp and summitted Kala Patthar (18,514′) in 2018 and am looking forward to more epic adventures in 2019 when I return to the Colorado Rockies. No matter where my feet take me, SPIBelt will be right there with me.
What is your biggest goal for 2019?
I plan to move up from 50K to 50 mile trail race in November.
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
My favorite SPIbelt product is the Glide. I use it while running or hiking to carry my phone in one pocket and my camera, keys and money in the other. Also, while traveling, I can carry my small bills (money) in one and larger bills in the other.
Coolest place you have taken your SPIbelt?
I used my Large Pocket SPIbelt to carry my Nepali money during my recent Everest Base Camp trek. My daughter used one of hers to do the same as well.
What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
No one drowns in sweat!
