01/11/14 – 8 miles
It was 70 degrees out when I started, and by five miles, my shirt was soaked through with sweat. That got me to thinking of a different approach to hydrating for next Sunday. I need to really tank up on fluids as mush as I can before the race, starting next Saturday morning. I’ll drink my Powerade all day & evening, and then when I wake up on Sunday morning. During the race, I’ll take two cups of Gatorade at every water station. (I wish they used Powerade.) Hopefully that will help. 8 days until the marathon.
