Happy Monday! I hope all of you on the East Coast are doing okay and hopefully enjoying an extra day off to shovel. Yikes, what a storm. I was somewhat glad to not be living in NYC this winter and especially to not be teaching skating outdoors in Central Park!
I am so excited this morning to announce that I have been chosen to be a part of the 2016 Simple Hydration Running Team!
Two years ago I got a great e-mail from Brian at Simple Hydration in regards to trying out his water bottle. I gladly accepted and was blown away. I don’t always run with water, and often try to map out my runs so that I don’t have to carry water with me. But I was really discouraged by the hydration options on the market. I didn’t want to wear another belt to hold my water or to carry it in my hands.
At first I was skeptical that the bottle would even work. The concept is that it fits on your pre-existing belt or on the waist of your pants/shorts. Before I even tried the bottle I was preparing myself for a mediocre review. But it worked! It was comfortable and I even forgot that I had it on.
Since then, I’ve encouraged many of my clients and athletes to purchase the bottle and try it for their long training runs. Everyone has liked the product and I am always impressed with how responsive the company was to helping our runners out.
So when I saw the chance to apply to be a part of this year’s running team, I decided to go for it. I was so busy, I didn’t even get a chance to check their blog to see who made the team. But Elle from AFastPacedLife tweeted that I made the team and I was so excited that I called Rock from the grocery store to let him know. Nothing like an exciting announcement while hanging in the produce section!
I can’t wait to share more information with you and show you all of the fun places I take my Simple Hydration this year!
Have you ever used Simple Hydration before?
