Earth Day and Bottled Water - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Earth Day and Bottled Water - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
In one year Americans spend over $11 billion dollars on bottled water alone. That's 650 plastic bottles per second that are thrown in the trash. 60 million water bottles a day that end up in a landfill. That's pretty mind boggling when you think about it. Enough to wrap around the earth three times.

Water Bottles for Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Water Bottles for Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
With so many water bottles for runners on the market, how do you decide which one is right for you? I've been asking runners of all types, from casual weekend runners to seasoned pros, and they all have something different to say about what kinds of water bottles they carry while running. In the beginning, when I first came up with the idea for swiggies, wrist water bottles, I was running in the peak summer heat in Texas and ended up passing out from dehydration because I didn't carry any water with me.

Dehydration and Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Dehydration and Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
Water is one of the most important things a runner can consume. About 60% of a runner's total body weight is water. Water helps maintain body temperature, improve digestion, and helps with circulation and excretion of wastes. If a runner doesn't drink enough water, they won't able to sweat adequately, and this is how body temperature is regulated. If they don't drink enough water their body temperature will rise. This can negatively impact physical performance and will eventually cause dehydration. Even a very small amount of dehydration can impact a runner's athletic performance. Thirst is not an indicator of dehydration. Dehydration can happen before an athlete even becomes thirsty.

Runners Need to Hydrate in the Winter - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Runners Need to Hydrate in the Winter - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
When the temperature starts to dip and snow covers the street, even the most hard core runners may have a hard time getting up the enthusiasm to layer up and go for a run. And staying hydrated might be the last thing on your mind. Sure, it's easier to remember to drink enough water and carry enough water when it's eighty degrees out. But in the winter your body can be tricked into thinking you don't really need to drink that much. The cool air and snow can mask our sense of exactly how much fluid we're really losing. And that can lead to dangerous dehydration. So runners need to hydrate in the winter.

Snowshoeing for Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Snowshoeing for Runners - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
If you're a hardcore runner and you're looking for a good cross training exercise to do in the winter, try snowshoeing. It uses 50% more energy than running on trails, so it's a perfect alternative to your regular running routine. A normal snowshoe workout burns about 600 calories an hour. That alone should be a good reason to take up snowshoeing for runners!
Creative Innovation's insight:

Great cross training for winter runners.

Kids at Risk for Dehydration - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Kids at Risk for Dehydration - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
As soon as the weather gets warmer, kids head outside to play, and that can put kids at risk for dehydration if they don't drink enough water. Most parents don’t realize that kids are much more susceptible to dehydration and heat illness than adults, and the effects are more serious. Part of the reason is that kids absorb more heat than adults, but sweat less. They also have less fluid and can go from mild dehydration to severe dehydration more quickly than adults. This is why kids need to have water on the go.

Earth Day and Reusable Water Bottles - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles

Earth Day and Reusable Water Bottles - Swiggies Wrist Water Bottles | running | Scoop.it
Every year Americans drink about 29 billion bottles of bottled water. Even though bottled water can cost thousands of times more than tap water, we seem to be addicted to it. In fact Americans spend about 11 billion dollars a year on bottled water. Sometimes it makes sense to use single use water bottles, like in disaster relief or for outdoor events, but most of the time we can help to cut down on the use of single use water bottles by carrying our own reusable water bottles.
