Thank you Nathan Sports!

I have been on a quest for the perfect product for my LONG runs. Something to help me stay hydrated and carry my STUFF. On a rainy Monday I received an uplifting email from Ellen with Penguin Brands, Nathan Sports company. Penguin and Nathan Sports will be sending me a Speed2 to test. Her words summarized were:

"We're happy to share our products with athletes, we believe that if we can create a true Nathan fanatic, and thereby a hydration product believer, we help out everyone involved. I look forward to reading the review on your blog. "

How AMAZING is that? I am so pumped. Living on one income (hubby stays home with our 2 boys) it is tough to find the extra cash to pay for my hobby/habit/sport/addiction….then wonderful companies like this step up and make it happen.

I can hardly wait for the Speed 2 to arrive. Thanks to Ellen, Penguin and Nathan, huge thumbs up in my book!!! Product review to come soon.. Check out the Nathan website link above, they have some great products!!
My belt coming soon..
I am in LOVE with the ladybug and pink ribbon bottles...hmmmm..maybe a birthday gift for myself? What a great choice instead of using plastic bottles..

HA! I LOVE my Nathan bottle. I have the green recycle bottle, drinking out of it right now! I use it every single day. My husband has the black one to match mine... we are dorks. But environmentally friendly dorks (plus i am VERY anti-plastic) in fact I have a new series of posts i'm going to do on things I heart, this is one of them i have planned.

And how does everyone get so much free stuff??!!!

HA! I was just thinking "hey, I saw that same bottle this morning in Fair Weather Runner's husband's office!" (we work together). Too funny. I have a Nathan single-bottle belt, I really like it although I don't typically carry it unless I'm going a long ways without access to water. Looking forward to your review of the belt!

jealous! I want to here the full scoop :)

Looking forward to your review...I have a Nathan pack with the one larger bottle and I'm not in love with it because I can't get it to lay right on the small of my back - it bounces and the zip compartment only holds like one gel and it's awakward to reach behind to unzip. However, it is a NICE pack, well-made and the bottle itself is awesome, but it bounces too much. I think the two bottles would lay better for me.

Can't wait to hear what you think!

Good for you!! You were looking for a hydration belt... and now you have one. For free!

I really like my Nathan 4 bottle belt. I'm sure you will be happy with your belt, too. :D

Hey Mel

Can't wait to hear what it's like. I can't imagine what it's like with a belt. I've never had to run so far that I've needed one and hate running with keys!

Aron said...

that is so awesome! thats the one i use and <3 it!

Ang said...

That is so amazing Mel!! I have a Nathan fanny pack(don't know what else to call it). I love it. Can't wait to hear if you love the pack with bottles.
