2016 Simple Hydration Running Team

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?

  1. Hahaha, had no idea that I broke the news to you. I’m super glad that you’re on the team with me. It’s a fun group and I met a few of the other ambassadors at races last year. It looks like three of us are going to be at Run for the Red.

    • Oh that will be so fun! I’m envisioning some great pics! It was so funny when I looked at my phone and saw that you mentioned me in a tweet. My days with the baby get turned around so I was surprised when I saw it. A great surprise!

  2. Congratulations!! I remember that review you posted. As a new runner I was desperate for a workable hydration system and when I saw your post I went and ordered a bottle. I’m still using the same one and I LOVE it. I just hook it onto my running belt and go. Thanks for that review and for spreading the word about Simple Hydration! 🙂

    • This made my day! I don’t like doing a lot of reviews because I think it can turn readers off. But this was one I felt was really helpful. And I am so glad you found it helpful for you too.

  3. Congratulations! I’ll have to check if they ship to Europe. Handsfree water running sounds great. I have however got to practice running with a hydration rucksack pack. Spartan Race 21km Beast orders. Could you recommend one that doesn’t cost the earth? Hope your little one’s okay!

    • I wish I could help you but I have never personally run with a pack. I do know the Simple Hydration team has members from all over the world. So I would imagine there is a way to get one to Europe. Let me know if you run into any issues.

  4. Congrats!!! You have always been one of the most trustworthy bloggers I’ve read. I know that when you like a product, you really like it and aren’t trying to just shove it in my face. 🙂

  5. Congratulations!! They are lucky to have you on board! I’ve never tried Simple Hydration for the same reasons that you were feeling skeptical about it and now I think I may need to give it a shot. I have yet to find a bottle that works for me. Currently I have only hand helds and I can’t stand them.
