Hi everyone - I have been following your threads and enjoying 'listening' to it all. Just thought I would put my tuppece in about carrying a bottle. I did VLM in 2012 and found that it was okay carrying a small bottle with energy drink in - to me it was like a security blanket especially in the last few miles. Normally hate carrying bottles but will try this again on Sunday. Can't wait - good luck everyone and take care for the next few days. I have also started taking the Beet It juice and will do so now until Sunday. does anyone else there use it?
Didn't hurt honest! It is very hard to get all the fluid out of a blister - I can never do it and despite putting on the plaster it still fills up again - the nurse as I say just took the skin away - good luck in whatever you decide to do - have read that if you use a needle thread it with cotton and go into the blister at one side and go out the other pulling the thread through - oh what fun!
