Getting ready for the race...
Tuesday, August 18, 2009
My 8 hr. adventure race is Sept. 19th! Not too far away.
I bought a CamelBak hydration system, bike helmet, and gel padded gloves on Amazon. The gloves were cheepish and the helmet comes in various colors. The reviews on the helmets were all good, but some were surprised by the color. So, I hope it kinda' matches my awesome CamelBak.
I got the 100 oz., woman designed, 500 cubic in. storage model. I was a little afraid that it my be too big for running, but reviewers said it can be cinched down for light days and the storage is great for extra clothes or bike tools on longer daily adventures.
Normal retail is $90 just on the CamelBak. so I think I did good with all three items for $103(tax/shipping included).
