There are several brands of gels out there ( GU , Hammer Gels , Sharkies , and Power Gels from Power Bar are a few popular ones), and most also have little blocks that have a texture a bit like gummy bears. These are pretty tasty too, and they can be a much tidier alternative if you’re klutzy like me and tend to spill things easily. The last thing you want is to have to run the rest of your race with sticky gel all over your hands and face! On that note, if you decide to use a gel, make sure you practice actually consuming it while you run. Tearing the top off and getting it straight in your mouth is a little more difficult than it sounds!
Other bits and pieces to remember: Depending on whether or not you have to travel for your race, you might need to pack a little heavier. However, some things you don’t want to forget…
Finally, a little motivation to get you going this morning…. for a run, perhaps?

Have a fantastic weekend!
