KGB Running was born out of the love and passion for running from our founder J.D. Callaway. One day before a run, he was looking for his running belt he usually wore on his runs. The running belt was misplaced somewhere and he thought "why do I need a separate piece of equipment to be able to carry my essentials on my run?" From there he came up with the idea for the SmartSlot Waistband to integrate into running shorts.
