  1. I’m so proud of you, PB! Cannot WAIT to get to Philly and celebrate your accomplishments… all 26.2 of them 🙂

  2. Thanks, PB! Great advice! I will certainly use it!

  3. Great insight, PB. I think it’s great to share lessons learned and how you’re making up for it/adjusting. Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. The gas in NJ part really hit home with me! Haha. I always let my tank nearly run out when I’m going down there. But always eat before running….of course.

    GU makes “just plain” flavor. I’ve had it handed to me during races, but never seen it in stores. It still is sweet, not not nearly as much as the other flavors.

  6. Great thoughts! I agree- running totally treats you to appreciate and focus on nutrition. Each of our bodies is a little different- so you totally must find what works for you. But water water water and refueling is so important!

    Several brands make flavorless gels.
    I use Powerbar brand because they aren’t as thick and go down faster.
    In training I do one about every 8 miles. In a marathon I do them more often. Miles 6, 12, 18, and 22 usually. And you always want to do them around a water stop, flavored or not. It’s really bad for your teeth to have that junk on them for hours.

    I get hungry the day after a long too.

    My favorite pre-race carb meal is pancakes 🙂

  8. Such a great post…cant believe I’m just reading this now. I am SOO sick of gels. I don’t mind the texture either, and never thought I’d be tired of them, but I find myself thinking “oh maybe I’ll only need one on this 18 miler” (when in fact, I need three). Looking forward to reading about chia seeds 🙂 Good luck with the rest of your training!

    Remember when you had that blog, PB? It’s like you let that car run out of gas.
