Am off to canada tomorrow- staying in a hotel in the middle of nowhere- am thinking of taking my Garmin, and doing a few runs before the CS 40- has anyone been through an airport wearing a GArmin? Is it OK?
ON a separate note- there is some very specific instruction re: drop bags for CS40, which is only described on facebook, as far as I can tell. I can't access face book today- did anyone else see the instructions? If I don't sort the drop bags out today I will have to run around next friday. Grrr
Agreed- you shouldn't need to carb load, and during the race, at most take a gel at about 10 miles- if you get a caffeine one, it will give you a boost- although it is likely to be more psychological than anything. ( Don't try this in the race for the first time- they can upset some folk's stomachs)
What aort of time are you aiming for? I only ask because a half is a print for those at the faster end, wheres if you are going to be a good bit over 2hrs you might need to eat a bit more as you go.
On race day you'll be flying by the time you get to mile 12!- adrenaline and crowd support are a great cure for tiredness. It's always easier on race day.
