I don’t know about you but I run about a 10-minute pace and after running for 30 minutes in the heat of summer you start to get thirsty. It is great if you can run around a place that has drinking fountains but if not you might want to consider running with water or a hydration bag of some kind.

One time I was so thirsty and desperate for water I used a public bathroom. I washed my hands so fast that the warm water out of the sink foamed up some residual soap as I gulped it down. Yuck….. don’t be that lady and run with water.

Take a photo of what you are using to stay hydrated and why you like it. I ended up getting a hydration vest. Still testing it out and will keep you posted if I love it. Ran with it one time for our long 6-mile run and I had the bottles on backward. I realized this since it wasn’t fitting it right (thought it was a bad design at the time) and the next day I noticed my ribs hurt from it rubbing against them. Should have read the directions better.

Make sure to follow Two Working Moms and use the hashtag #TWMrunners. Let’s get out there and run together!!!* L
