Hydration Belt and Welcome Amanda!

Run Distance: 7 miles, Run Time: 1 Hour 5 Min

I got a decent tempo run in tonight at the gym. It was kind of warm because there were no fans around me but I told myself that it wasn't near as hot as that fitness center in Daytona and I was fine.

When I got home, my roommate Amanda and I went to the TC Running Company to look for some running gear. I bought my very first hydration belt, the Nathan Speed 2. I was debating between that one and a Fuel belt that only held 16 oz rather than 20. I liked the way the Fuel Belt felt better but the Nathan just held more water. So I settled with the Nathan (after some encouragement from Amanda).

Anyway, big news here! I would like to introduce you all to my roommate, Amanda. She will be running the Kansas City Marathon with me. I highly encourage you to check out her blog at She is new at blogging and would like to get a good network of runners.

Yeah! You got a hydration belt! Now I can stop worrying about you running in the heat without water. Try freezing the water bottles half full over night, its so nice to have ice cold water when you are running in hot weather.
