How is it that I've run 4 marathons and did not know about this product? Truly, it's hard to believe.
I picked up an Amphipod handheld water bottle, almost as an afterthought, to use on my 20-miler. I've never considered holding a water bottle in a race (or long run for that matter)because, well, I couldn't imagine having to actually hold it. My hands tend to stop working in the later stages of a hard run. A race? Forget about it.
Immediately, I knew I loved this product. You absolutely do not have to hold it at all. In fact, you can't even shake your hand hard enough to get it to come off on its own. Its perfectly sculptured design is very, very comfortable. Also, I love that it has a zip pocket- perfect for carrying gels, car key, etc.
The only downside is the weight of carrying water. So, it may not be for every situation. Also, the sound of sloshing water got my attention- but just a little.
Has anyone else come across a great product by accident like this?
Have a great Monday, all. I will leave you with this adorable version of Imma Be:
