NEO-TOTE* Insulated Water Bottle Holders

Skitz Pick

I don’t like to drink warm water when I’m running outdoors. I like a nice cool stream of refreshment that perks me up. This need sparked a quest long ago. Unfortunately, the marketplace let me down. With every gadget known to man available on the web, ways to transport ice cold water  “on the go” isn’t one of them.

I’ve bought fuel belts, waste packs, Camelbaks– you name it– it’s probably in my closet. For runs lasting longer than an hour, I use a Fuel Belt with 2 plastic bottles. Works just fine but in 5 minutes the fluid is warm. 

I had to get creative. After experimenting with various types of bottles, I found these fantastic little “koozies” for the original plastic bottles. They help protect the fluid from the sun and provide good insulation.

CEP Allsports Calf Sleeves

Skitz Pick

Call it “Spanx” for athletes!  I love compression gear!  I own compression shirts, shorts, capris, socks and now calf sleeves.

 I race in them and wear them to speed my recoveries from hard workouts.  The tightness feels like a massage while you’re working out.  Similar to taping, except without the restriction of movement, compression gear provides support in all the right places.

Available in white, black, red, green, pink, and blue
