    Hey! Congrats on an awesome run. Question(s) Do you go to these events solo or with a posse? Also, im running my first half on Saturday. Do you take gu or beans or anything like that and if you do, when you do take them/how often during a run?

    Hey Melissa,

    I usually go solo although this time I was with a friend who was going to a gig in the same city.

    I sometimes take Reeses Cups for fuel. If there is Gatorade or Powerade on the course then I just take that and carry the bottle with me for as long as I possibly can!

    Good luck with the run!

    Ok, being Italian I may be too maniac with food …. but cookies, cheese, sausages rolls, kfc, beer and aspirina isn’t exactly my favourite pre-race diet XD
    Next time try with some pasta and try to avoid the booze. If you can’t avoid the booze, avoid kfc and bad wine at least 🙂

    Congrats for the great race. How was the weather? As for your nipple, put some vaselline on it before the race or cover it with a band aid or medical tape. Bleeding nipples are a pain in the arse.

    One time I tried the carb load thing and at a box of mac-n-cheese, bloated with what added like 5 inches to my waist. Ugh! When asked I recommend a hearty meal with plenty of hours for it to digest. I could totally down some fried chicken night before a race. yummmm….

    That’s cool we both got personal bests this weekend – congrats to you! Go ahead and sign up for another race to keep that awesome momentum going. 🙂
