Hammer Nutriton makes Endurolytes which is sodium plus other electrolytes. They come in capsules and dissolvable tablets. There are dealers in Canada, so if you're not near one maybe you can find one and contact them to find out what they would charge for shipping. The dealer search page is here: www.hammernutrition.com/dealer-locat

Glad you got to the bottom of the issue.

If fast food places have salt packets for salting your food, you might try taking some of those with you. You could probably order salt tablets online, too, if you want to go that route. I'd probably go with pretzels or almonds, though--both very portable and salty. Glad you figured out what the problem is!

Interesting! Well, I know I get tremendously dizzy after a marathon or super long runs when I sweat alot, so I experimented and a small bag of potato chips when this is likely helps. Before I would say find a sports drink with a higher sodium content and simply add a little salt. DD one time had a headache after our first half together and the first aid tent gave her chicken broth because it was high in sodium. It is low calorie as well and a fluid.

So I was talking to a few guys who do ironmans and told them my problem. They asked if I sweat alot. I said I sweat more than anyone I know its kinda of gross lol. they told me I sweating out all my salt in my body. they suggested salt pills but of course they are not in Canada lol dont even get me started on the topic lol. So I need a few ideas of a healthier snack before a race that is higher in salt. I was thinking pretzels or almonds but would love all your imput
