There are accessories to be bought.
I have only dabbled in the world of running-gadgets, and it shows: I usually head out for runs completely unprepared for anything that may befall me. I have an iPod and headphones, and sometimes a watch. No Garmin, just an old-school watch with the old-school time. It does have a little button I can push to make it light up, though, so....there's that.
SO ANYWAY... that launched a whole conversation about fuel belts versus race ready shorts, Gu versus Shot Bloks, sipping water versus gulping it....which left me thinking that my original plan of "start running, then stop running," wasn't gonna cut it on race day.
So, what is your experience, fellow long-distance runner types? Fanny pack? No fanny pack? Shorts? Lumpy bra? What are the cool kids doing these days?
