Staying hydrated on a run is crucial to performance and success.

Dehydration can start long before a runner realizes it’s happening.  It’s simply not enough to re-fuel after the run – hydrating must take place, before, during and yes after the run.  [for more information on hydration CLICK HERE]

Long before I ever got pregnant I made it a habit to carry water with me on every run.  This simple habit has helped me fend off fatigue, enabling me to run farther and faster.

Over the years I’ve tried dozens of different styles and brands of hydration packs, bottles, and waist belts.  I’ve settled on a handheld bottle as being the easiest and most efficient for most of my runs.

For the past month I’ve been testing out the Go Lite Hydroclutch and have nothing but great things to say about it.  The stretch woven fabric is tight enough that I do not have to technically speaking hold the bottle the entire run, but not too tight that it starts to hurt my hand.  The small fabric pocket is large enough that I am able to stuff my keys and plenty of energy chews in it.  The bottle is PBA free, easily screws off to add more water mid-run and holds up to 21 oz of water.
If you are looking for an inexpensive option to add to your running hydration arsenal, at only $15 the hydroclutch is a more than excellent choice!

Enter below to win one of two Hydroclutch’s from Go Lite!!!
