I just had a flipbelt to keep my phone it. I had one gel in my shorts pocket, since the course had gels available on mile 18, which I felt was too far in. But like I said earlier, so many people were giving away food, spectators, and sponsors. I ended up eating a lot of different things, which looking at it now seems like the worst idea since I didn't do that in training. I ate gaterade chews, salted pretzels, kind bars, bananas, jolly ranchers, a gel, some random snack bars, and more that I'm forgetting, ha. The water/gaterade is available every mile or so, so I didn't need to carry a bottle, spectators also were giving away bottles that were cold
Seeing the lines for the bathrooms was just brutal
, as soon as I saw guys just running behind trees, going towards walls and going, I did the same hahaEdited by KeVeNMaYnE - 10/12/15 at 8:00am
