I did wonder about sports drinks / gels though. I mean, you finish a marathon having had a few gels and you feel like you've eaten a sweet shop. Even if you try to swallow them straight down, some gets left in your mouth.
On longer runs (30 miles +) I've taken to eating cheese pitta breads - some how it seems to help me much more than sugars / gels.
I've just seen this, I found the sketchers quite narrow but pretty long...which is perfect for my feet, but may not be for yours...this is probably a couple of months too late to matter.
Incidentally, I have just chucked my pair out after 10 months of running in them. Really liked them, initially I didn't think I'd do more than the odd 5k in them, but they were nice. I reviewed them here over the 10 months I had them rather than just a review after a few hours like normal.
