before I started taking
my bits - almost done
|This is just depressing|
I was up before 6:00, and as I was going through my morning routine, I counted out 30 bits, and popped them 2x2 with water. I also grabbed a coffee from Starbucks (skinny vanilla latte), but that was all I had before the race. I meet up with my super awesome running friends - Marcia and Jill - to head over to the race. (I will do a full race recap in another post, including the debacle about meeting up and leaving a car at one location...)

Marcia, Jill, & Me
It was not a PR, but I never felt sluggish. I will say around mile 5 I started to a little stomach discomfort and started drinking more water, but once we cross the finish and I got some more food in my stomach, I felt fine. I cannot be 100% sure this is related to the ENERGYbits, but it was something I wondered about when my stomach started hurting. I had used ENERGYbits once before on this training run, and didn't have an issue with stomach problems then, so it could have just been the fettucini alfredo from dinner last night!
It's now 3:30, and I am still feeling pretty good, considering the lack of sleep, transport to and from the race, as well as the race itself. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been wanting a nap around 1 pm, so being #poweredbybits is definitely helping! I think I've got another serving left in my tin, so I'm hoping to use them for my next long bike ride - which I was hoping was going to be this weekend, but only if the rain heads out before I do!
Thanks so much to ENERGYbits for sharing the love and letting me be #poweredbybits today!
