Here we go:
Has anyone tried the FRS healthy energy drinks or chews?
Has anyone tried the Gatorade trifecta (energize, rehydrate and repair or something like that)? I got some pre-game stuff but it tastes like pure fruit-punch sugar. Wondering what is good out there...
Running Shoes - I currently run in a pair of Brooks Adrenaline which I was fitted for... I love them deeply and am into my 2nd pair. As I start to increase my mileage, is it wise to have a spare pair that I start breaking in? How many shoes do I need in general and knowing the marathon isn't until October, how should I plan out my footware?
I know I have to start drinking water along my longer runs - does anyone have recommendations about what products are good to run with? I've seen those belts with some water containers on them, but hope to gain some personal experience guidance...
For the longer runs on Saturday, should I start out at my normal pace or take it easy knowing it will be a longer distance?
Should I carb load 1 or 2 days prior? Wondering what the timeframe is where the carbs become most useful.
