I use the Nathan Velocity Waist Pak. It holds 1 22 oz bottle and has a zippered pocket. I don't usually use it for 5K runs unless it is really hot and humid out. I mainly use this if I am doing any long runs. It's comfortable and fits securly on my waist. It is easy to remove the water bottle as well. There are other ones where you don't have to have around your waist but hold in your hand. I contemplated getting one of those but really don't like holding anything while I run.
If you run in a 5K race, most have a water station or two depending on the course.
Hope this helps. Keep up the good work!

I suck down water like there's no tomorrow when I work out. So far, I can manage with a water bottle for the C25K training, but I think when I get to actually running 5K, I'm in trouble. I've seen thingsl ike fannypacks that hold a couple of water bottles and that seems like a great idea because I can also keep my cell phone and epi-pen handy, but it seems bulky too. What is everyone doing to stay hydrated when they run?
