Runners - Do You Trust The Water Stations?
Friday, December 09, 2011
I'm very new to running - I did my first 5k this past October
But I read this article linked today on RunnerGirl's Facebook feed: www.lvrj.com/news/marath
I didn't think twice when the cute little girls were handing out Gatorade midway through the 5k I ran, but now I'm thinking about these bigger events (and even the small ones too)
Do you take your own fluids? One would think that a big city marathon would take precautions but apparently not
I want to run Bolder Boulder this coming May, and that is a big race 50K+ - should I plan to bring my own hydration?
Sorry if these seem like newbie questions - it is because I am :)
