Water Bottle

Running With Water - How to Carry Water During a Workout or Race

Marathoners must keep their hydration in check as they often run in the most uncomfortable weather with humidity at its peak or even during scorching heat. Not only is the weight of water bottle very important as it must be carried for longer distance, the amount of liquid it holds is important as well as not all athletes want to stop for frequent refills. One best example of water bottle can be the Ultraspire Iso Versa 2.0 which can hold 0.59 liters of water. (20 oz)


Have you ever wondered how uncomfortable would it be if you were in between of a run and suddenly rain started to pour? The splash of water getting into the eyes of the athlete would be very discomforting. In a similar way during excessive heat, it is equally uncomfortable. Hence a marathoner must always keep a cap handy for all these situations.


Music is the best companion for any sportsperson. It adds to the motivation and often reduces the tiredness and stress which can act as disturbance in the marathon journey. Earphones come in various price ranges thus a person can choose the best one in their budget.
