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 2020?
I have a few big goals this year but my biggest is running the Batona Trail 50K in October.
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
I have a bunch of SPIbelts; but, the one I use the most is my Duel Pocket Pro Rave. I love the two pockets because I can carry my iPhone XR in the larger pocket and my keys and ID in the smaller pocket on my runs and hikes. It allows for easy access to my phone without worrying about dropping anything else or scratching my phone. It’s really become my everyday belt.
Coolest place you have taken your SPIbelt?
My daughter and I completed a MT Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal and we both used SPIbelts to carry our valuables and money safely.
What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
No one drowns in sweat!
Anything else you want to share with our fans?
I’ll be retiring to Jamaica this fall!
