The wonderful folks over at Nathan Sports - website - were gracious enough to send me a Speed 2 belt to review and another to giveaway!
I've always been skeptical of any type of hydration belt, just because of the fact that I assumed that it would weigh me down while running. So, the first time I tried it out, I wore it on a short 4 mile run. Guess what? It didn't bother me at all! Actually, I absolutely loved it! It didn't weight me down and it was very handy to have 20 ounces of water right there at my fingertips.
But, this didn't sell me on the long run. A 4 miler, sure. But what about longer distances? Would it bother me then? So, this past weekend, I took it along for a 7 miler. And...wait for it...WOW! Next to my running buddy, the belt is now my favorite piece of running gear! And I think it might be her favorite too! She drank from one bottle as I drank from the other.
The Speed 2 was a good choice for me because I am a water dropper. Before a long run, I always go out and drop water at the halfway point. I didn't want a belt that weighted me down too much, so I didn't think I would like one with 4 bottles. So, I still drop halfway water and have the belt for thirst issues along the way. Not to mention, it has a fabulous pocket for energy gels, chews, cell phone, car keys, whatever your pleasure! So, to the people over at Nathan, THANK YOU! I absolutely love it!
Now, onto the giveaway! Nathan also sent me a second Speed 2 to give away. It is a SMALL, which is a waist size of 26-32".
