My brother and I were having a fun conversation on Facebook. I mentioned a soda, and someone commented that they were surprised I drank them. My brother then commented that coke is offered at many endurance events at aid stations. (Still, yes, I know I should cut them... but I drink no coffee, so it's my caffeine.)
But it led into a conversation about "fuel". Stuff you didn't think would be considered endurance fuel. I never thought that taking up running would renew my appreciation for PB&J and gummy bears, but it has.
In San Diego, I saw ice pops and twizzlers along the course...
One of my favorite bloggers, Skinnyrunner ran a marathon fueled on Swedish Fish alone.
