iArrow Armband 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.

I'm one of those people who still uses an ipod when I run. I know. I know. I need to get with the times. I use my iPhone when I'm on the treadmill, but I don't normally run with mine because I don't have a holder.

Well, I had the opportunity to review the iArrow - iPhone 5 Armband. I was anxious to give it a try.

Upon my first inspection, it seemed easy enough to use. Basically you put your iPhone into the holder, put the holder into the case and strap it to your arm. However, I have a hard cover case on my iPhone. I have the case that you can drop it in water, drop it down stairs or on concrete and it will supposedly still work. I've dropped my phone numerous times, and with Lil Man's use of my phone, it requires a heavy duty case.

So I was disappointed that I would have to remove the case to use the iArrow Armband. Now in fairness to the product, there isn't anything wrong with the product. It is simply that my case doesn't work with it. And for me, removing my case in the wee hours of the morning (when I often run), just isn't feasible. So this case will not work for me.

But the iArrow - iPhone 5 Armband, was durable. I have super tiny arms so the band was a little big for me, but it seemed to stay put for the most part. The case fit snug (no jiggling). I could get to all of the buttons while the phone was in the case. All in all, this was a nice iPhone holder, especially if you don't have a special case or don't mind removing your case to use it. This case does have a screen protector which I found was a nice addition.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    I am an Athlete and I wish to buy iPhone 5 Running Armband. It should be authentic and should look sporty and classic. One I cam across on and it is handsome but I am in dilemma to buy this due to quality factor.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
