Tomorrow, I will be doing my first half IM. It looks to be a toasty day - 102 degrees, not considering the over 70% humidity. Should be a major deposit into the IM bank if I can pull it off. The plan: treat this like a practice run for Wisconsin, especially in the realm of nutrition. I'm going to take enduralyte tabs (3 of the old ones per hour), carbo pro 2 scoops per hour, 2 bottles of fluid per hour (one bottle water, one bottle gatorade), and 1-2 powerbars on the run. I guess I'll see how I feel. I'm usually a fly by the seat of my pants kind of nutrition person, so this will be good practice on the planning front. I'm number 168, and here I go.
