Free Bottles are Free

I recall when I went to the local 3k last winter that they had a bunch of logo water bottles. Now, despite being not in the best of shape (lol!), I'm still down for a good run outside. But these events also have free stuff. Free totes, free shirts, pencils and def free bottles and containers. It's a bit frugal, cheap, even griftery but a free item that can be used as needed clothing and containers for the home is so worth it.
