Today’s question is from Crystal Ross – she asks
“I will be running my 10 road marathon in June. I am struggling to decide if I should run with my hydration vest. I have worn it for all 9 marathons and my 50 miler, I call it my “baby blanket” Coach Ryan and I have discussed that it isn’t going to slow me down that much, so there is no real reason to not run with it.
A person I run with made a comments to me that I just cannot shake. Here it is: “Why are you wearing your vest? This is a marathon NOT an ultra. Elites don’t wear vest. You should mirror what the Elite do.”
