I had to get to the store for supplies yesterday. I had to buy:
2 liters of Gatorade
1 pack of Ritz-PB crackers
1 pack of PayDay Bars (I have to cut them in half myself, I can't find the snack size around here! What is up with that)
Pringles Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips (a fine breakfast food pre ultra, a good snack during the race)
Fig Newton bites-I bought these for Mike, maybe I can tempt him with these about 3am..
1 Gallon of Water. Like the Gatorade, mainly to have in my vehicle pre and post run.
For my pacing duties, it's primarily the same as what I use during my run. I'll eat ClifBlok Shots, PB crackers, whatever is in my waistpack. My best snack is going to be homemade peanut brittle made by my cohost, Andrew! My goal is to keep myself sustained while looking out for my runner. I'm going to toss a bag with extra stuff in Mike's crew caravan in case I want any Ensure or Adrenalin drink.
For the aid station, I bought a bunch of washcloths. I'm bringing a styrofoam cooler, going to fill it full of ice and water, and hand out icy cloths to overheated runners. I also bought a cutting board, so we have something decent to use while cutting up food. I have some quilts and blankets to donate to the race. While you might not think blankets could be needed for a race in the beginning of August, you never know when a runner may catch a chill in the evening hours. Or, if nothing else, more padding to sit or lay on to rest.
I've got my clothes ready; aid station clothes; running clothes; post run clothes. I am pretty much ready to go. I'm pysched. This is fun to experience a 100 mile race without "running" the whole thing.
