You probably should start carrying water now (or plan to get some along the way) since you're out for over an hour. You don't really need carbs during a run unless you're going for more than 3 hours or so ("the wall"), since your body has enough stored to last that long. They might help you to get a better workout, though. Another alternative is to have your carbs immediately before you go running.

The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
I read your forum topic because I too was wondering the same thing... when I looked at your log/profile I realized you too were from Little Rock!!! What a small world...
the LR Marathon 5k was my first race last year too. I'm training for the HM in March as well.
Are you training with the schedule off of the lr marathon website? I have seen different ones, I can't figure out which to follow.
