Jelly beans are OK, but my prefernce is percy piglets- ( smaller than pigs- so easy to eat on the go). The also do a veggie version of the bigger pigs, if that is an issue for anyone.
Breakfasts- I've been OK with porridge and tea, and at Loch NEss they bus you up to a cold starting location, where they provide tea/ coffee, and Ive indulged in tha twithout "issues".
Mind you, I have to plan all my long runs around the loos available at the shopping centre that I pass at mile 5, and I take immodium for all my marathons, so I'm not entirely immune, I've just learned to deal with it.
Gels with caffeine in are a highly effective laxative...........I avoid them except when an emergency boost of energy is needed.
