Running on the ocean
You know when you're running a ultra marathon because the pain actually starts to hurt -- Jakob Herrmann my running achievements
If those things are not available, use rocks!
You'll ruin your knees!
Lynn, that ultrunr website is awesome! I've been reading all the pages and getting lots of insights. Thanks for sending it to me. If you have any other ultra website links, I'd love to read those too!
Sorry to ask again, but did you say you used Zantac? I think I'll try that instead of Pepcid and see if that works better. Someone posted on that other site that they start taking it 2x per day 2 days before their races and this helps head off nausea/heartburn.
I'm running the Lost Dutchman Marathon this Sunday so that'll be a good test..

The right rock actually makes a great substitute for TP, even if there are leaves around.
(you run less risk of a rash in a bad place )
My friend also said you just have to get over the whole bathroom deal. You use wipes and tp and bring baggies. If those things are not available, use rocks! That must be a "we live in the desert and have no leaves available" thing. I'm still hoping that part will not be an issue but if it is, clearly, I will probably be the one most disturbed by it.

I use Hammer Nutrition's ENDUROLYTES electrolytes - outstanding. I bloat on the SaltStick ones - too much sodium I think.
