Fortunately, I was right.
But I have a confession. I had a Chocolate Outrage GU at mile 4. Which I know is kind of ridiculous for a single digit run.
Confession #2: I don't regret it. The last 2 miles were a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Like my last mile was my fastest amazing. Like sprinting out the last block amazing. Like grinning for the next hour amazing.
My rule used to be no GUs unless it was a double digit run. I'm thinking now the new rule is 7 miles or more. : )
What about y'all? When do you bring out the fuel? Or do you do Gatorade for a medium distance run? I'm curious to see what everyone else's rules are.
