Emmy, Kate's right you don't need a backpack. Last time I wore a water belt as the aid stations are spread out (every 5 miles I think) and it was a hot and windy October day. This year my OH and I will probably be wearing hydration vests but not carrying a full load of water. that way we can carry an extra layer and not worry about "racing". We are really out having a fun long run with company this weekend and enjoying the aid stations which are, by the way, taken very seriously indeed. One even has a brass band at it normally!!
5 miles done at lunchtime as a first and last training run for Beachy! ;-) Time to taper now.
