Seriously? I've carried water for a handful of runs, most to test a camelback or carry something else. The only runs I've felt I needed to carry water was:<br>
1) Fell running, up in the mountains - stupid without.<br>
2) On my 20 miler in the middle of summer running for 2 hours 45.<br><br>
Am I a freak?

i carry sports drink on all runs over 90 minutes. However, i am a nutritional freak and practice constantly supplying my body with calories in eternal practice for my races.

I don't carry water for 8 miles and under. I carry a handheld for a lot of mid-length runs. for long runs I wear a fuel belt or a camelbak (holds up to 70 ounces). I think the camelbak 45 ounce in the article looks pretty tempting. That's a lot of water compared to most waist belts. My four bottle fuel belt only holds 28 ounces so I frequently have to drop water somewhere so I can refill bottles.
