I usually don’t care what I look like when I run or workout. Ever. I wear the most obnoxious colour combinations and I am 100% okay with it. Yesterday was different though. I was having a really good day. I had a few extremely generous donations toward my fundraiser (thank you from the bottom of my heart, ladies), I completed my workout without getting a black eye (thank goodness), and I received some pretty sweet stuff in the mail. All of this amazingness made me want to get a little run in later in the afternoon. Basically I wanted to enjoy the sunshine and sport some really cool gear.
I’m not going to lie. I am pretty proud of my coordination here. I am sporting the Tempo shorts I picked up in NYC, my new Chickband and some sweet New Balance sunglasses I won from Vanessa’s giveaway (which arrived in the mail today!). I seriously felt like a superhero. The glasses fit like a glove and they’re white and pink. Enough said.
Wanna hear about something else I’m loving right now?? I introduce you to my Gel-bot.
I saw this genius bottle on the Hydrapak website and got in contact with Scott from outside PR right away. He sent me one to review and let me tell you, I don’t know how I ever lived without it. It incorporates gel and water in one handy bottle. No ripping packets open while running. No sticky hands and face. Just one handy bottle carrying both nutrition and hydration.
How does it work?
From the website:
This bottle is seriously amazing. I used it while training for my Urbanathlon and it was perfect for my runs. It fits about two gels in the inner chamber. I recommend more watery gels, as the thicker ones are a little more difficult to squeeze out (but you can always add a little water to your gel to thin it out).
Now for the good part… WHO WANTS ONE?!?! Scott had kindly offered to give one of my readers a Gel-bot too!
