I kind of wish these were spread out more evenly so I have a better idea of when to expect them without the need to memorize this list. I especially wish these were more spread out since it seems a bit silly to go over two miles between stations at a couple points...but then there is less than a mile in between stations at another point. I don't know, maybe I am not an experienced runner to realize the benefits of the way these are spread out. For my novice self, something around every 1.5 miles would have been more ideal. Oh well.
I finally did buy all my race fuel. I have a bottle of 50 glucose tablets, and a few packages each of Honey Stinger chews and Sports Beans. Dick's Sporting Goods finally opened up their chain where I live, and mailed out a $10 off a $25 purchase coupon as a promotion. Since I was in need of new running socks, I headed over there yesterday. My socks were $15, so I essentially got $10 worth of Honey Stingers and Sports Beans for free. Good deal!
I am doing most of my packing today. The only thing I am leaving out will be bathroom essentials until Thursday before I leave. Tomorrow I do my online check in for my flight. Thursday afternoon, I fly out. I can't quite decide if time dragged while waiting for this trip, or if it has flown by. It feels like both.
