One of the reasons I joined the running club was for the support on longer runs. Almost every week there's water and snacks at stations along our routes.
Today it was my turn to work at one. The conversation was great and the runners were grateful. I had bought some powdered Gatorade, which was a big hit.
I had a particularly good conversation with one of the former presidents of the running club. One of my annoyances with the club has been a lot of fussing about my nutrition when I choose to share what I do. There's been this implication that I'm going to have big problems because I don't drink Gatorade or eat processed sugars or flours. I may very well have big problems -- but it won't be related to my nutrition.
Anyway, here's a great article from his website on nutrition for athletes, which is much more in line with my take on it.
