2. Road ID
You never know when something could happen that leaves you unable to explain important medical information or emergency contact info. I haven't had to use my Road ID, but I wear my wrist ID slim at all times and have my young children wear theirs too. They are too young to have my cell phone and my husband's cell memorized, so they know to ask someone to call mom or dad and show them the ID. My ID states my name; husbands phone number; friend's phone number; medication allergies; year of birth and blood type.
With this handy dandy silicone strap, turn any bottle into a hand held water bottle. Genius! ...And, the perfect size for a stocking stuffer item.
There are two favorites that I enjoy. The first is not as well known, but very tasty. Check out Cocogo and try the Raspberry Passion Fruit! You can use code OUTRUNNINGTHERAIN for 10% off your order. This product is a blend of coconut water and real fruit. Natural ingredients. No extra chemicals, coloring and all that unnecessary stuff.
My second favorite electrolyte option is Nuun. This is a fizzy tablet that you need to make sure is done dissolving before putting the cap back on your bottle. Trust me. :) I enjoy the Cherry Limeade flavor but really like Watermelon... but that is a seasonal flavor.
This belt is perfect for carrying your phone and a little fuel while also keeping track of your race bib. I prefer this method than poking holes in my tech clothes (that are sometimes rather expensive). This belt is also perfect for relay racing. I can unsnap it, change my clothes and snap the belt back on without losing track of it between legs or in the shuffle of gear in the back of the team van.
