    Hopefully I'll be done before it gets too toasty, and hopefully there will be a few clouds this time!:thumbsup2

    Since you did the marathon in the heat, when do you recommend starting to drink?

    BWHAHAHA...drinking will occur about 2 hours after the start of the race for me. All kidding aside, I typically carry my Nathan bottle and drink when I need to, just no Gatorade/Powerade for me, it gives me horrible cramps.

    Sport pack of vodka and the heat won't even bother you!

    I didn't stop the first 6 miles, I just grabbed water and Gatorade like every other stop or every 2 stops after mile 7. . I think, it's kind of a blur. There's probably better methods. .I'm no pro by any means :lmao: Toward the 14 mile mark I was more concerned with having the water poured on my head than drinking it :D

    Hahaha, I love that idea! I got an Ifitness belt with the 2 bottles attached. Guess that will come in handy!

    How did you know vodka is my drink of choice?!? I think I'm in love! LOL. I know I will be grabbing all the drinks I can along the way. Thanks for the advice!

    Agreed! I wonder where the "adult beverage drinking" will be after? I will probably be either in traction, on a stretcher or in a wheelchair.

    It was a very humid run, I've never burned through so much water running 13 miles and it was a bit of a slow start because I was back in corral C with the rest of us "Princes." Otherwise, it was a really fun run to be in and it makes me look forward to the Tower of Terror 10 miler in October.

    I'd love to have done the Expedition Everest Challenge, but didn't sign up and it's sold out.

    If you think last weekend was humid, wait until the ToT....(where's the smilie face dripping in sweat?)

    If you are part of a running group or go through the official travel sponsor, you can still get a registration for the Everest Challenge.:thumbsup2

    What was your take on being a "Prince" in an ocean of Princesses?

    I checked around and cannot find any running group for the EC race; I know this is an option for the races and they have teams for the Challenge, but I think the teams work a bit differently for the Challenge as they are limited to two people.

    Jokingly, I'll say, I felt like a piece of meat for a pack of lionesses. I got on the bus at BC and my partner and I were one of like 4 men and lets just say, they made it known that they were glad a prince was on the bus.
