Yesterday, I opened my mail and saw the white USP package for which I’d been waiting. I was hoping it would get here before Saturday and it did. Who says the United States Post Office is unreliable?
The package was from tthe good folks over at Gballz. They sent me three new joggling bags for my upcoming TV appearance. (More on that later). While I love my current set of Ultraleather Elite bags, they have been through a lot in the last year and were starting to look a little weathered.
They were dropped in mud, dropped under a running treadmill, and water-logged in the London marathon. They even briefly developed a strange stain reminiscent of those visions of spiritual beings in weird places. I never did figure out what caused the marks or why they disappeared.
My new set is the ultra suede series. They are a colorful shade of orange and have a light, soft feel. Unlike many bean-filled, suede bags these are not over stuffed to make them feel hard as a rock. They are smooshie but feel solid when you catch them. A true joy to juggle. I haven’t tried joggling with them yet but I’m looking forward to doing that tomorrow during my next big race, the Quarryman 10 miler. I’ll let you know how it goes.
