Fuel belt/pack recommendations needed!
I have an SPI belt that I run with occasionally. I used it during my first HM and it drove.me.crazy. I ended up taking the thing off and giving it to my Dad because I was so annoyed with it. Well, on these past few long runs, I've needed some extra storage space. My amphipod handheld is great, but it can only hold 3 GUs. I'd also like to be able to carry my cell phone, meds, etc. I don't think I will actually run with water on M-day. I think the hydration stations should be plenty (there are 21). Plus, if you carry your own water, don't you have to stop and refill your bottles? I'm talking logistics here (not really concerned about my finish time). So, the reason I dislike the SPI belt is because 1) it gets all twisty when full 2) it rides up to my natural waist and hurts my belly (like I need anymore belly issues). So, what do you guys use/recommend for carrying your fuel/necessities on race day? Any tips and recommendations for fuel/hydration on race day is appreciated!
