      Nice running, David! I picked up a new belt for Boston and love it. Amphipod. You can add or subtract bottles to the belt and they can be any size as long as they fit the belt.

      I think that I need to switch over from my camebak to a belt for the summer. That camelbak makes me REALLY hot and sweaty.

      I tried a handheld on my last run -- it didn't work for me. After looking at several belts and vests at a couple of stores I bought a belt similar to the old one I have now.
