racing without plastic

Our course got flooded, so we ran today instead.
At the last minute, I decided my Sigg would be too heavy to run with.
So I re-used the same waxy paper cup for the whole 2 hours of racing.
At each water station I asked them to pour the water right into my cup.
Compared to the hassle of running half a marathon on muddy trails, it was really no trouble at all, and I must have saved at LEAST 10 cups.

If you read this blog you know that Erin and I dislike wasteful one-time use products more than anything, so today was a major victory in the crusade against OTU!

pictures to come.
