In November I will start my HM training so in preparation I have bought myself a new running bottle and belt.
The only lasting effect of being a kidney donor is that I have to make sure I don't dehydrate. They are really happy for me to keep running distance and even said I could do a marathon (I probably won't) but I must be hydrated better than I would normally be for events and long runs
So with this in mind I treated myself to a new running belt with bigger running bottles. I probably would never drink both but on my first HM I was in the position of them running out of water at one on the 3/4 way round stops and that would be bad for me so I have made the decision to carry more than I will need so whatever happens I will always have enough.
I also think it's good to get used to how these feel full long before I need them as there will be a bit of a difference with a litre of water on my back.
I also like the fact then when you go up to the bigger bottles you get a bigger storage bit as well, as I have also decided to carry a pair of cheap reading glasses as I can't read any sort of instruction without them now. Hehe my best friend who often meets me after events has got some weird texts from me when I have finished because I can't read what I've typed without glasses. 😀
Have a great weekend
Wishing you health and happiness
