Wow! I am so psyched! I am more than half way to a half marathon now. Half marathon is 13 miles. I made it 8 today, slower than molasses, but I did it. I have no doubts in my mind that I will make it to 13 miles now! Adding the extra fuel to my day and my workout has made a huge difference for me. I had not one, but two 100 calorie gels. One before my run, one half way through and then after my run I had a Balance bar too because I was wiped out from my run. It took me an hour and 45 minutes to do it, but I DID IT! I followed that with a good lunch of fish, brown rice, and peas a huge glass of water. I want to thank you girls so much for all of your encouragement. You all are the best and have been such a big support to me.

You are definitely on track to beat my HM time! I always liked the GU for refueling during runs. There is another product referred to as 'beans' that I've heard alot of buzz about for race refueling as well. Carbo loading on complex carbs the night before your long run can help the fatigue as well as a caffeine boost immediately before. I like to drink a McDonald's iced vanilla coffee about an hour before I race. Nice job on your new PR! I can't wait to hear when you hit that magical 13.1!
