>Look What I Can Do!>18 mile contrition run
Dawg and Zoom-Zoom with get a chuckle out of the fact that you both entered my thoughts. Zoom-Zoom -- i was concerned about the slick stick leaving stains and Dawg ... as I was dry heaving i was thinking ... damn - the dawg was right -- slow and steady on the long runs -- the distance is more important than the speed. [How creepy is that?]

I feel your pain - reminds me of the 18-miler that I did last week. I took only an 8-oz bottle of water with me and tried to ration it over 3 hours.
Guess I need a better hydration plan for my next 18-20-miler - I've got 1 or 2 more before my marathon in Oct.
I can't tell you how many times I considered "borrowing" a little water from an outdoor faucet at someone's home ... the idea of getting shot or surprising thier dog has always kept me moving along. Also considered jamming my face into a lawn sprinkler but it would appear that the water is coming out with too much force [not to mention the potential to have someone catch you on all fours like a rabid puppy --- sorry sir, i seem to have lost a contact.] A couple of other spots I have found that are always typically open with easy access and no questions are:
[most of them can double up w/ great bath rooms as well.]
