Or you can always try my hi tech solution.....Yesterday I decided to do a long run to take advantage of cool weather on vacation. Didn't have my running bottle or waist pack, so I bought two small bottles of water and stuck them into the waist band of my compression shorts, then tied a sweatshirt around my waist to hold the bottles in place. (Pulled my shirt over the shorts so no unwanted skin showing.) it actually worked and I only had to stop and adjust the bottles a few times. Not quite as nice as the waist pack, but made it through two hours with no chafing or bouncing.

I'm fortunate enough that I'm able to structure my long runs (outside of trail long runs) around easily accessible water stops, typically bubblers/fountains.  Usually I'm running the canal outside my front door and there's water at mile 2, 4.5, 6 (that's the best as it's inside a resort and it's lemon or cucumber water) and mile 8 which means I can easily knock out 20 and never have to worry about carrying water.  Out on the trails I'll carry handhelds.

3L Camelpak for anything over 10. Yeah it takes a bit of getting used to and feels heavy when you first start running but you get used to it pretty quick. I actually use my military issued version. I guess it's easier for me because I wore it so much over in the box.

I use a couple of hand held bottles with grip straps for anything shorter.

Most of those thinking about tackling a long swim instinctively feel it’s necessary to Do much to build endurance - more yards, harder laps. But a focus on Receiving is ideal for long distances.

Well the day is finally here. I don't believe a single workout has gone by in these past 9 years where the idea of being at the start line of the Ironman Hawaii didn't creep into my head.

So far the taper is feeling good and I'm getting that itchy feeling to race. I know this will grow even stronger when I get to the island and see my friends and PBN Team members.

Definitely glad this weekend is out of the way as 145 miles of cycling and 27 miles of running in two days is a fair amount.
