Sounds like you need to go back and get another popsicle!
Sorry it was a bust for you. Hope your next is more fun!
I don't like the fact that you are given a plastic cup at the aid stations, because you can't 'pinch' them to drink from. Makes it very difficult to get the water/powerade down your throat and not all over your face--unless you really slow down.

Anyway, to drink from a paper cup on the run, pinch the rim such that it closes on itself except for one spot, which would form a spout. It eliminates splashing, and you can drink from it like a water bottle. The trick then becomes grabbing the cup on the run so it won't spill half the water before you can clamp down on it.
Ahhh...that makes sense. I must have looked like such a dolt trying to daintily sip from that cup!
This ain't no tea time, so none of that daintily sip business. You're a well trained racing machine. With a little practice on the hand off, you should be able to blow by the water stations with cups in your hand
