With evenings getting lighter and the sun shining brighter, theres no better time to take up running than now! But it can be daunting if you're taking up running for the first time; how are you supposed to carry your phone, keys, money, water? 

Running gear usually consist of lycra leggings, with no way of stuffing your phone into the tiny stretch pockets. You could also carry your phone in the pockets of your shorts - making them slide down as you run which isn't ideal. Some of my bustier friends have even carried their phones in their bra! - this sounds uncomfortable and potentially embarrassing! 

So.. 'How should I carry my phone?!' you ask.

If you use a running bag or belt - you’re already ahead of the game! But most running bags are too small for most smart phones, We made sure that the Fleetfoot max 3 fits even the iPhone 6 plus!

Last week, I was welcomed to the Workplay bags team as marketing assistant! I was set the challenge of going for a run over the weekend (eek!) with the iconic organised ladies running bag - the Fleetfoot3max ! Obviously, being a girly girl, the look of the bag is important to me and thats why I chose the berry colour. Here is my review of using the running bag.

The weather was not great over the weekend which meant I had to take a jacket out with me. Usually this means tying it around my waist and having to adjust it as it slips down my legs! However, with the Fleetfoot3max I was able to tuck the jacket into the back of the bag, I even forgot it was there! (Until it started raining!).

I usually struggle to find a place to carry all the necessities when I go on a run: phone, keys, water bottle, earphones and sometimes snacks. I've used bags before but I'm put off by running to the sound of my keys! The Fleetfoot3max surprised me with the noise-muffling pocket - so I was able to run to my own music, rather than my keys clunking! I was delighted that I could fit my iPhone 6s perfectly into the bag. The handy headphone port stopped my cables tangling, as well as being able to fully close the zip on the bag, making my phone secure.  

Overall, the Fleetfoot3max made my workout more enjoyable as I didn't have to worry about losing anything and literally everything has been thought of! 

I am now helping to manage the social media for workplay and I'd love to hear your thoughts about your workplay bag - as I've got so much to learn! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
