GU chews (carbohydrates + caffeine) – these work for me, I don’t think I could take a gel but these are good.

mini protein bar for afterwards – yes, these are the ones that were given out at finale, love them.

Timing chip threaded onto shoelaces and tested for comfort: check

Breakfast planned (wholemeal English muffin with jam): check

Playlist programmed into my iPhone: check

And running is supposed to be simple!!
