Two days til’ race day! WhooHooo! Unfortunately I have been sick this week. I work in an elementary school which is a germ brewery. I have not been sick all year and the first week there are no kids I get sick. I don’t think my body knows what to do with a sterile environment! What is a quick fix for coughs, colds and lack of energy?
I’m so excited Mike brought home my new hydration system. I am trying out the Nathan Sprint. It is a hand held water bottle with a one way valve so no messing with openings and closings. I always do my races with a Honey Stinger (or two) diluted in water and sip the whole race. I can’t handle gulps at water stations very well. This has worked well but I was always fumbling trying to get the flask in and out of the little carrier tucked in my waistband. If I didn’t get the lid closed, I would have honey water dripping down my shorts! Yuck! I will let you know how it works!
