Go with what got you there! You don’t have to use what’s at the aid stations.
A big fallacy is the notion that you have to rely on what is at an event to get you through your event. You have to remember the 6 P’s – Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.
I never go to an event without all the stuff I use in training, and many of my events are going on for hours at a time. Be Prepared. Train it. Race it.
Why spend weeks, if not months, preparing for an event if all that planning and preparation is left up to what some promoter decides to have at their event, for what is just about the most important aspect of your day: how you fuel yourself?
