Is there an area of your training that you know you’re totally lacking in? For me it’s drinking enough water (and swimming, but that’s a whole ‘nuther post!) There are days when I’ll go to bed wondering if I had a single glass all day. Fail! Every January 1st, I promise myself I’m going to drink more water this year and I devise some strategy to make myself drink. I’ve had mixed success, but I figure anything that gets me hydrated is worth it. So when the very nice people at CafePress.com asked me to review their Sigg water bottle, the first thing I thought was, “AHA! Maybe this is the trick I’ve been looking for!”
Made of durable aluminum, it’s got a great finger-ring top so you can hold it even when your hands are full of other stuff.
CafePress offers two sizes: .6 L (~18 oz.) and 1 L (~33 oz.)
You can choose from thousands of their designs – they have awesome ones for runners and triathletes! – or you can make your own.
I ended up choosing a gender-neutral design because I know darn well The Hubs and the kiddos will be begging to use this bottle, too.
I put this Sigg bottle through some rigorous testing and it passed with flying colors:
- The Cute Test – Check!
- The Sniff Test (because I’m not drinking out of it if it smells metallic or yucky) – Check!
- The Taste Test (see above, no metallic water for me please) – Check!
- The Will-I-Actually-Drink-From-It Test – Check! Yay! Having the Sigg bottle next to me kept me drinking all day long.
Even before they sent me this water bottle, I was a fan of CafePress. The Hubs and I have been shopping there for a few years now, and every year we make each other a special ceramic Christmas ornament. Last year the kids both got one, too. I’m so impressed by the quality of the printing and they seem to ship very quickly. I was excited to see that they’ve added holiday photo cards this year – I’ve ordered from other online card places and have been disappointed. The 20% off plus FREE shipping they’re offering is pretty sweet, too!
Don’t forget, I’m giving away a CafePress.com Beach Tote Bag as one of the prizes in my virtual race!
