For running distances up to a 10K (6.2 miles), you don’t really need to carry that much water. Something like a running hydration vest that holds a liter or more of water is kind of overkill. Enter: handheld water bottles like the Nathan SpeedDraw.
This water bottle comes equipped with an attached zippered pouch that fits most smartphones and, depending on the size of your phone, can fit additional small personal items such as car keys as well.
The pouch features an adjustable strap and a thumb loop that secures the bottle to your hand, so you don’t have to actively hold it—this is great news since clenching your fist during a run is a huge waste of energy!
