With the Broad Street Run less than a week away and the weather man predicting bright, sunny skies (yay!), I’m in full-on hydration mode. This week, I’m keeping a tally of how many times I fill my water bottle at work. My daily goal: four refills. To be honest, this amounts to approximately 400 percent more water than I usually drink. My plan is to flood myself with water until race day.
This month over on our Be Well Philly Facebook page, we’re asking readers about their water-guzzling habits. It’s our monthly Average Philadelphian poll question, the results of which will be published in an upcoming issue of Philly Mag. But this month, we’re giving you another incentive to weigh in: We’ve teamed up with the awesome folks over at Hydros to offer a prize to one lucky poll-taker! The winner, selected at random, will get a Hydros self-filtering water bottle. For the record, I own one of these bottles and, yes, they are awesome. The 16-ounce, BPA-free bottles can filter plain ol’ tap water (from the gym’s water fountain, perhaps?) in less than 30 seconds, so there’s no waiting around while you watch your water drip, drip, drip. And the filter removes chlorine, chloramine and particulates. Neat, right?
Head over to our Facebook page to answer the poll question. Post your answer by Friday, May 11th at 5 p.m. to be entered in the giveaway!
