1. I recently purchased this water bottle and was regretting the purchase as it was really hard to drink out of and I kept stopping and taking the lid off every time I wanted a good drink. I could swear I was following the directions that came with it and everything. It said to bite and pull to get a drink. I was! I was biting and pulling and squeezing and staying thirsty and frustrated.
2. I am having trouble commiting to a race this weekend. Originally I didn't plan on doing it as I thought it was two weeks before the marathon, but it is three and I feel pretty safe with that. Now I just can't decide if I should do the 5k or the 10k.
I am leaning towards the 10k but...it starts at 9am and the 5k starts at 8:30. I think this is a little backwards and they should start the 10k at 8 so we can get done before it starts to get hot. So I have been delaying registering until closer to race day so I can decide which race I will do based on the weather forecast.
I have until Friday to decide. I was leaning toward 5k, but now looking at this,
I am leaning back towards the 10k. Plus if I do the 10k I won't feel like I have to do more miles later or earlier in the day, just a warm up and cool down mile or two.
