    One of my favorite pieces of running gear is a 40 oz insulated stainless steel water bottle. Mine is made by LifeLine but Hydroflask is another popular brand. I can fill this up full of ice and water, leave it in my car all day in the heat of summer, go running in the evening, and come back to plenty of ice-cold water. Worth every penny!

      Those are fantastic!!! Hot/cold lasts a very long time.

    Have you tried the North Face “Better Than Naked Hat”? This is what I use. I sweat profusely when I run and this hat has a foam-like piece in the brim, next to your forehead, which draws the sweat away from your brow so it drips down to the front edge. It does such a great job that it’s hard to use my phone during or after a run, because of all the sweat dripping off my hat onto the screen unless I hold it at arms length.
