Day # 913 ~ Double Day a.m. 8 miles - p.m. 6.2 miles
Even though the temperatures have plummeted re-hydrating was still on my mind after my run last evening. I mixed my glass of chocolate milk and realized that I still hadn't figured out what I was going to use for hydration during Stone Mill. With the Stone Mill 50 miler less than a week away it is a decision I need to make soon.
I am looking at getting a pack with a bit more storage but one that is sized better for my body than the giant Camelbak that I used during Laurel Highlands.
These are two packs I am looking at.
Nathan Intensity Race Vest
Basically they are the same. The Intensity is supposed to be sized for a female body. I am hoping someone will have first hand experience with one or the other to let me know...
1. Was there enough storage. What could you carry?
2. Did you get the Nathan HPL and think it felt too big?
3. What about the valve? Did you have any trouble with it?
4. Any issues with the pack shifting and causing chafing?
I've read a ton of reviews about packs but can't find them locally to try them out for fit. Since I still have the scars on my back from chafing during FOTM, I am hopeful that I can finally find a pack that stays put and keeps me supplied.
Now that you offered your two cents, let me return the favor and remind you that
is about to start!
