What, huh?

Monday morning and feeling back on track after the illnesses attacked my house. Thankfully I avoided getting sick while the kid and the hubs are fighting a nasty cold. Could it be that I am eating better and working out making my body healthier, whatever it is not having that nasty cold is  a win in my book. I headed to Spin this morning and took it easy - I wanted to give my muscles a little time to recover from yesterday's run but also get my workout in. Hip pain minimal, ankle pain none - I call that a win in my book.

I was looking through my current addition of Runner's World and something caught my eye. Not for being a must try product or an inspiration article, but for its shear ridiculousness.   The product advertised on there Holiday Gift Guide pages.......The SWIH, now I can't say that its a flop, but I am not sure that this would be approved by the late and great Billy Mays.

What do you think? Do you see this product floating around bloggyland anytime soon. Have you see any other products advertised that just made you say What!!?

  1. Do not like! How odd, and it looks uncomfortable, too.

    Glad you avoided the bug in your house! I had it a couple weeks ago, no fun at all.

  2. Yeah...that's totally ridiculous. I can't believe a running magazine would actually advertise that!

  4. How would you even be able to run with that, then take it out for a drink, and continue running? No way!

  9. I saw that and just about dropped my laptop I was laughing so hard. I want to see someone actually try to run with that. Pure ridiculousness.

  10. I saw this, too, in Runner's World and I thought that there is NO WAY I would ever buy something like that. Just not practical at all.

  11. I don't even like carrying water or strapping it to my hips let alone my head! I think I'd get sea sick from the sloshing of the water at the base of my skull!
