Fueled by Krispy Kreme and Lil Wayne

I'm new to the world of distance running, so the concept of supplements is foreign to me. My knowledge of proper pre-aerobic eating/drinking habits is limited to the following:
  • Avoid dairy
  • Go easy on the booze (this was a particular challenge for some of my lax teammates...ah, memories)

And then I started stalking running blogs and discovered this whole new world of gels, hydration belts, sports beans and other edible materials of questionable consistency (read: goo). My cousin, a cyclist, further confirmed the benefits of performance enhancing products and made some recommendations. So, I caved and grabbed a couple packs of Shot Bloks for my New Year's Day race. I'll let you know how it goes.

It's a win/win situation: either I will legitimately experience a Hulk-like-shirt-ripping energy boost or I will THINK I am having Hulk-like-shirt-ripping energy boost. Either way I'm ripping my shirt.

Or's going to be cold and my jacket is new.
