What Being Injured Is Giving Me

*This post contains affiliate links.*
I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Yoga Mat Bag By Gecko Active Review

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Hot Diggity dog! I found it! Even though my yoga mat has a carrying strap, maybe it's just me, but I find the straps pretty annoying. Either they are slipping off the mat or slipping to the point that I'm dropping the mat, or I'm struggling just to get the strap on the mat. Either way I find it extremely irritating. I mean come on, who wants to lose their Zen from yoga to have to deal with trying to get their mat back in the strap. 

Drum roll please, I introduce to you my yoga mat bag from gecko active.

My first impression - this is so cute. I like the design. I love the zippered pouch on the inside. It's big enough to hold a yoga towel, post-workout snack, even a small change of clothes. There's not a ton of room to put a three-piece suit in there or anything, but I believe that it would hold a pair of shorts and a T-shirt if necessary. And there is a smaller zipper pocket on the other side. It's a great place to stash my keys and my ID.

And I like the fact that I can have all of my things in one place instead of having to carry my yoga mat, my keys, my ID, and  anything else that I might need etc. And it sure was a whole lot easier to roll up my mat, put it inside the yoga mat bag, and zipper it up. 

It's stylish, extremely functional, and now one of my favorite pieces of gym gear. If you are Yogi, have a friend who is, or if you're someone like me who's just dabbling a little bit with yoga to help cross train with their running, this yoga mat bag from gecko active would make a really great gift. Just something to think about :)
