Meet SPIbelt Ambassador John C.

I am 30 something, husband and dad. I am finding my feet in figuring out family life and training. I have an incredibly supportive wife and I am finding Dad life is actually a great boost to my training because it prevents procrastination and drives me to train as soon as a window opens, that window may not open again for a few days so seize the chance when you can.

Q & A

What quote or motto keeps you motivated?    

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

What does “free to be” mean to you?

Be you, don’t worry about anyone else.

What is your biggest goal for 2018?

Biggest goal for 2018 is a 3 day triathlon event which will see the usual swim, bike, run format mixed up and changed around. It will be shorter, faster distances that I will have to change my training up to ensure I stay injury free and get faster.

Coolest place you have taken your SPIbelt?      

Wicklow Way, Ireland.

What is your favorite SPIbelt product and why?   

Large Pocket SPIbelt is always my go to belt, I love it so much, every run I go on my SPIBelt comes with me. People always ask and I always rave about it.

What is your tip for someone just starting out on the running journey?

Get out and run, don’t stress about being too slow/fast. Enjoy it, even 5 minutes a day is a great start.
