It's just a matter of days until the Chicago Park District turns the water fountains along the Lakefront Path and its parks back on for the season. To help prepare you for this Chicago running holiday, we've prepared a quiz with the help from our friends at Nathan Hydration to help you get educated on the importance of hydration. After the quiz, keep scrolling and take a look at some of our portable hydration products from Nathan. From waist belts, to backpacks, to handhelds, there's a hydration product that fits your style.
