How I Fuel Up During a Run

NYC Marathon Training: Day 36 It was humid from the very start of the run so I was happy that I brought along extra water and gatorade. I wear a hydration belt that holds up to 4 small water bottles whenever I run longer than 7-8 miles. Otherwise, I'll just run with a bottle in hand.

I also like to take a GU energy gel after approx. 45 mins of running on my long days to help replenish carbs, amino acids and electrolytes.  So make sure you stay hydrated and replenish your carbs and electrolytes!
