Say "No" to Bottled H20

cafepress tshirtThis week’s theme at Runner's Lounge TIaRT is… Running Green
I’ve always had a special interest in protecting the environment. I’m not a hardcore tree hugger more like an evolved hippie.
My #1 practice for running green is:

Stop buying bottled water!

There was a time when you couldn’t buy individual bottles of pre-packaged water. Runners had to plan their routes to include public water fountains and gas stations for their water fix.
Now we can pack our water with us in reuseable containers.
One nice trend I’ve noticed at races is Big Gatorade cylinders filled with water. So at your next race, instead of reaching for the free bottle of water - take a paper cup and fill’er up.
