Hydration Help from RunWashington

RunWashington has just published an indispensable guide to the various water fountains and hydration systems along the DC-area running trails.

Seriously, bookmark that web page right now.

In addition, they have developed a simple Google doc that readers can use to help them keep this guide updated.  If you've got info on a fountain--new, old, working, broken--make use of the form!

It is customarily very hot in Washington, DC in June (and July and August and often September and sometimes October), so hydration is a must for just about any run.  Do not overestimate your abilities in the heat, and do not overestimate how far you can go without needing water or electrolytes.  Run with caution and good sense . . . and in close proximity to good hydrating fluids.

Stay safe out there.
