Finding a running vest for a fat guy

So here’s the deal… because of the restrictions at the Boston Marathon I need a vest that a) is lightweight, b) has bottles and not a bladder, c) has room for my junk (nutrition stuff), and d) preferably has the bottles facing forward.  The truth is all this is NOT easy to find for a fat guy.  Over the next few posts I’ll be talking about what has an hasn’t worked for me!
