No more Gatorade in the hydration pack. It is not going down well. Stick with Powerade Zero in the pack and get nutrition from gels and food.

Nausea

Event comments:

This is a very well-run, small race through pretty scenery. It is a good course for first time trail runners because there is very little technical trail. Footing is good. The course is extremely well marked. It could also be a PR course because the roads make for a fast time. There are a few tough hills, though.
