Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
The one thing that you can usually count on is water.So carry your own carbs/electrolytes, whether it be gels, sportsbeans, Bloks, or fluids. The most important thing is to experiment on long runs or shorter races to see what works for you.
Run like a kid again!
What sportsdrink do you use?
... I like only carrying my 22 oz bottle.
From about 12 miles on, at each water stop i'd take one to drink and one to pour into the hat.
I've pulled that trick... works nicely.. just make sure you keep the excess water off your shoes.... nothing makes for blisters faster than wet shoes.. .
