Hi guys! This is going to be a quick post, but I wanted to get some input from all of my “runner-friends!”
First of all, HELLLOOO humidity! I left my house at 7am this morning for a 4 mile run, and it was already 79 degrees and extremely humid. My legs felt good on the run, but it was the humidity that was so difficult. By the end, I felt like breathing was difficult.
Anyone have any tips on running in high humidity?
I will say that one thing that helped was this …
… the Nathan Quickdraw Plus. I bought it yesterday at Dick’s, because I’m sick of carrying a normal water bottle.
I love that this water bottle has a hand strap. It makes it so much easier to carry. And there’s a pocket for your keys or other small things you may need to carry (they say you can put a phone in there, but unless your phone is the size of a paperclip, I really don’t see how that’s possible ….).
While at Dick’s, I also purchased some of these …
… various energy gels, chews, and jelly beans.
I’ve never used any products like these before. But since Brandon and I are now running longer distances, I thought that we should probably try some of them out.
Once we try them, I’ll let you know our thoughts. But for now, my question to all of you is …
Do you use any type of nutritional supplement/energy booster while you are running? If so, what kind do you use? Any particular brand or flavor that you favor?
I’d appreciate any input that you could give!
On a completely unrelated note, I have started a page on Facebook for my blog. If you look to the right ————–>, you should see a link. I just started it so there’s not much there, but I’d love the support if you want to “like” my page!!
