Okay, trail geeks, yesterday I received my Nathan hydration pack, and it's embarrassing to admit, I tore open the packaging like a rabid dog on a toddler, strapped it on, and went ballistic with excitement.

"LOOK AT ALL THE STORAGE POUCHES AND OMFG IT HOLDS SO MUCH WATER AND THERE'S NO FRICTION WITH THE STRAPS!!!111!!!"

I'm giving 'er a try this weekend on a 4 hour run. A full review will follow.

Also, I received this email the other day:

Denis to me Jul 16 (4 days ago)
Russ,

Thanks for your application. Will you be going to the Pre Race Dinner? Please reply to this email.

Denis T.


My confirmation for the SD100! Holy shite, it's for realz, yo!

Whoa: I'm so excited, I said "for realz, yo!".

Oh my god! Oh my god! I don't know what I am more excited about, the email or the hydration pack. That hydration system is really hardcore. You won't be pulling a Dave Chappelle anytime soon.
And he probably won't be running 100 miles soon either.

Dang! If that could hold a Krups Expresso maker and you could fit biscotti in the pouches, I'd be all over it.

It doesn't chafe? Well, you'll have to report back on that, you're probably in the middle of your 4-hour tour as I sit on my behind, typing this. Gotta say though, that vest is hardcore. New toys are the best. And so are nonchalant e-mails from race organizers.
