This is the 3rd time I am trying to write the same post now.  I wasn't able to post any thing the last two weeks kept getting an error message but could not find help with the issue.  I am now going to make this really quick. Today I did the Westport 4.1 miler, It felt like chicken soup out there. My only goal was to finish. I was very sensible and took it very easy.  I now bring my water bottle with me on every run and in every race it just makes sense. I manage to finish just under 40 minutes which was fine with me on a day like today I was happy to finish. I went into the water after the race and that made it so worth it. Well there you have it not much I know but I have a feeling I will be coming back here more often than not.

It's not easy to run with a bottle in the hand but sometimes we have to. Glad you reached your goal on the race.

I always run with a half-liter bottle, even carrying it when it's empty b/c you might run past a fountain somewhere. It saved my bacon in the infamous 2007 Chicago 26-mile Fun Run, 88 degrees and humid, they had water in 5 gallon jugs but couldn't deliver it to smaller containers fast enough; I would fill up my empty half-litre bottle each stop. Good graphic Dawn, "like running in chicken soup." And to go straight into the water after it, nice!
