New Gear: A Before and After

Based on the advice from a friend, I purchased the Nathan Quick Draw water bottle contraption this past week on Amazon. When it came I was instantly impressed. It comfortably fits in either hand and the pouch easily holds my inhaler, keys and money or an ID. When it’s full of water, the weight gets a little annoying, but I found you could easily rectify this problem by drinking some of your water.

I used it once and was quite pleased with my purchase.

Then, I biffed it. I biffed it hardcore. I was walking my friends’ dogs and I lost my footing on an uneven sidewalk. Incase you were wondering, this is what happens when you skid forward on a cement sidewalk while holding your Nathan Quick Draw:



I am actually quite impressed with how well the holder held up in the fall (and the bottle, just a few scratches). Unfortunately, when the pouch ripped open, my inhaler was damaged. It is still fully functional, the cover just won’t stay on. As for the quick draw, I think the damage is something I can easily sew back together.

I’m Amy and I’m a runner (Hi Amy)

Me: Hello everyone. My name is Amy and I’m a runner.

You: Hi Amy!

Me: It’s been 12 hours since my last run.

You: Wow. That’s awesome.

Me: I don’t know if I can resist the temptation to run anymore.

You: Don’t fight it. Celebrate it.

Me: You got it. Hey world, I’m a freaking runner! Did you hear that? AMY MARIE KANT IS A RUNNER.

You should know that I made it Dailymile official (see Facebook official). I am no longer a “Walker.” I’m a “Runner” and it’s not going back. Ever. Even if I do walk during my training, I know I’m a runner now. No one can take that away from me, unless they cut my legs off.
