Probably not the exact answer you were hunting for.
So, if I don't get the kids & myself up and on a bus before 5, there is no way to get from BCV to Epcot for the finish?

Would it make more sense to try to catch him at TTC & them go back to Epcot? If we have to be up at the same time, we might as well try.

Read the instructions and understand how to take them.. Too many or without enough water can put you on the side of the road. If you follow the lower end of dosage, you should do well. These as compared with others brands have a higher buffer component that will help keep you from having GI issues as readily.

I carry in the bottom of a fanny pack in a zip lock. I take the initial dose in the room then take more every hour as I run.
Coach - Bought some today. Do you change hydration strategy with them - like less power aid and more plain water because you're getting nutrients from the capsules?

Also- it was an expensive trip to the running store. They have Nike+ watches on sale. I have convinced myself the pacing with GPS will be helpful. ;-)

I can't speak to how you manage everything, because everyone's salt needs are different. But Endurolytes and other salt tablets/electrolyte supplements (such as Nuun) have zero to very few calories....so you will still need to take on sports drink and/or gels/blocks to have the calories to get through the run.

Sushi is my go-to meal. Light, easily digestible, and lots of protein, carbs, and salt.

I'm so new to this that I don't have traditions yet! Five hours before ToT, we were at Il Mulino. I had gnocchi, which was awesome and didn't seem to do any more damage than the weather.

Friday night, we'll be at Narcoossee's - protein!

What? They let the parents run too? Darn helicopter parents! If your kid can run a mile, they can run a mile alone.

My boys won't be happy about that - they run 1500 for cross country but also run lots of 1 milers & 5K's. One does a 25 minute 5K, they're competitive & hate when the parents get in the way.

So, are there any awards given who finished first? Those are usually based on gun time at races around here. Is there a reason they need to be the front of the starting line other than to get out ahead of a 5 y/o and her mommy & daddy?

Yes, I think it would. The half is really a bummer for spectators and more so for spectators of speedy runners.

I agree with Betsy.... you will not change any other aspect of you nutrition/hydration strategy. Through, I would not take on a sport drink or fuel at the same water stop I take on the Endurolytes. While I am not sure the caplets will create an issue, I would not risk overloading the gut at one stop with other solids.

Generally, something light. It may or may not be pasta. If we eat out, we are usually eating around the white haired time zone - 3-4 pm. This is especially true for Disney where buses to the race start running at midnight PST.

Couple quick questions for those who may know:

1) Can you get salt tablets at the expo? I too am a heavy sweater, have not used them before but would rather have some "just in case". My coach will be with me, I know he has used them before.

2) Anyone know TSA regs on powders? I use Cytomax (Powerade/Gatorade = GI issues) and I have the HUGE tub of powder. Was planning to put what I needed into a zip bag and take it in my carry on, but curious if it will be an issue.

So excited, only 2 more wake ups and we are on the plane!!
