I’m still not a huge fan of video blogs (also called “vlogs,” one of the dumbest words I’ve ever heard). I guess I’d just rather read a well-written post than watch someone talk about something off the cuff. But there are times when videos are more appropriate, and this is one of them.
Down with needless bonks
Today’s post is a video review of my Nathan hydration vest. Before I got it, I was terrible about bringing water and food on runs because I just hated to carry it along, and this resulted in a few really bad and even dangerous bonks. And my Nathan vest has solved that problem so well that I decided it was worth a post. I didn’t even know these things existed until I started trail running, so I’m guessing there are a lot of you who think the only hydration option is a sucky Fuel Belt.
So here you go. This isn’t a paid review (I don’t do those), and they didn’t send it to me for free or anything. I’m just a big fan. (By the way, in the beginning when I’m talking about my upcoming race, I’m saying “HAT 50K,” not “half 50K.” That would be an even dumber word than “vlog,” because wouldn’t we just call it a 25K?)
To learn more about Nathan products, visit their website. (The one I have is the HPL 020). If you want to buy one, here’s a link to Amazon’s Nathan vests. That’s an affiliate link, like most of my links to Amazon, which means I get a commission when someone buys stuff from it. But I think you know me well enough by now to know I wouldn’t recommend something I didn’t really like.
I mention Vega Sport in the video, too. Here’s a link to my Vega Sport review.
Stay out of trouble tonight! And if you wouldn’t mind, leave me a comment to let me know how Oscar-worthy my performance was. And I’d like to know what you all do for hydration, too.
