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.

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

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
