Nathan Handheld: LOVE
So I was always on the fence about carrying anything during my runs. I've never been a fan and so have gone through various waistbelts. I now also own a Hydraquiver that I use for hiking and for runs where the weather allows for sleeves. I haven't taken it out in a tank top yet- but I'm super worried about chafing.
So that's where the handheld came in. A few weeks back as it was drawing closer to RNR Nashville and it looked like it was going to be a hot one I decided to try it out. I hadn't been able to get long runs in with the hydraquiver and it barely got warm enough for me to try with a tank. I needed something else.
When I was getting fitted for new shoes I decided to grab one of these Nathan's. It will hold my GUs, keys, phone or GoPro and I can drink 16oz of water along the way. It was super helpful during RNR Nashville and I've been using it ever since. I carry it on most of my runs now that the temps are getting higher and the humidity it seems is always sky high.
Carrying something isn't so bad when you don't really have to hold onto it! The hand strap makes that very easy. :)
