In this blog I describe how I use crushed NUUN tablets as a low weight electrolyte replacement.
The Brooklyn Half this weekend will be humid and that means lots of sweat and possible dehydration and the possible annoying complications of kidney failure and death.
I considered carrying two ten ounce bottles on my hydration belt as I do for training but I don’t want to shlep a pound with me and instead I’m trying something new.
I crushed Nuun tablets and put them in small bags. I plan to drink water. Pour water in the bag and walk 10 feet and then chug and run. I plan to do this at miles 6.2 and 10. I plan to use GU at the start, and then at mile 5 and 9
