7 reasons to run with a sippy cup

A lady on Beginner Triathlete posted this recently, and I just had to share it with you. Here are raeray80's reasons why she races with a sippy cup:

7. Carries 10 oz., just enough to take two good sips every five minutes on a 70-80 minute run.

6. Built-in, no-leak silicone valve means no unscrewing of cap, and no push-pull action to manuever with one's teeth to get a drink. Just lift and suck!

5. Spill-proof for a toddler = spill-proof for me! The cap of a dropped sippy cup does not pop off, exploding my precious drink everywhere when my hands get sweaty and I have an "oops."

4. Contoured design makes it easy to carry without a strap.

3. Running with a sippy cup screams confidence. Yeah - that's right, it's a sippy cup. You can stare all you want. I know you wished you'd thought of it. Yeah, keep staring, pointing, laughing at the ridiculous awesomeness that is beholden to me.

2. With so many color options, I can pick my mix 'n match cap and bottle to fit my mood. Am I cheerful? Pink with a yellow top. Patriotic? Red, white and blue. PMS'ing? Environmental? Sleepy? Lazy? The combinations are limitless.

1. Price tag: $1.97. Enough said.

A sippy cup is probably better than the $12 fuel belt hand flask (aka sippy cup) I use.

Lora said...

So true, RST.

Hand held bottles are invaluable! It got me through my Ironman run!

Lora said...

That's awesome, Jon!

I admit to using my son's sippy cup during the few runs when I was pushing him in the stroller. :)

Good for you, Alili! We endurance athletes are quite resourceful.
