My only big issue I've had (and it's silly, but hey), is that I have to figure out a way to bring sports drink for longer runs. So far, I've used a water bottle and tucked it under the flap on my waist CB. No issues with it falling out, either, I was surprised. Of course, I checked it every 20 seconds.....I'm weird like that. Anyway, big thumbs up from me on hydration systems.
Yeah, but I want the water, too. It's only really an issue on my longer runs for mary training. I'm looking into using the little bottles like on a Fuel Belt (you can get 'em separate), or taking another bladder along for sports drink.
Or if they came in ninja black with night-vision goggles. That'd be good, too.

I was just reading through some old threads to get ideas for my water bottle hunt and found this nifty water bottle which reminded me of this post...
I wonder how easy it would be to clean, though...?

Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Before my 50k, I was at a North Face outlet and they were having a huge sale. I got a $70 NF branded model for $17, so I figured that I would give it a try. I also got a hand held water bottle a week or so later, and that was what I wound up using during my race and have been using on my training runs (which have only been around 12 miles).
I did use the backpack once, and I liked it, and will definitely be using it again. I can't see using it at a road marathon at all, though, but will definitly use it on a longer training run where I won't be able to refill my water bottle.
