    Lori, you hit it on the head with every section! I wish I had this info in the beginning! 4 years later, I consider myself a pro! Best tips were the water bottle and duffel organization!

    Drink before you are thirsty and eat before you are hungry.. now is not the time to try and restrict consumption.. I would advise to drink a minimum of 3-5 servings of Acli-Mate per day with your fluids.. I have been taking a scoop 1st thing in the am, scoops in each training bottle and a scoop prior to bed for the last 6 weeks and have seen a improvement in energy and recovery time

    Get that Acli-mate up in you! Not only will it help you with Altitude differences, but it will help your body recover and prepare for what you are about to take on. Besides the potassium, the herbal complex will help you recover from efforts and increase oxygen consumption. Great in the AM to start off, and great in the PM to recover well. Good luck Lori!

    Lori- Thank you for the excellent tips and tricks!

    Aaron, it sounds like it’s only stage two that require the gloves, hat, shell and emergency blanket. Lori noted that during her race, (different year) that she was required to bring those items with her daily. Can you confirm that it’s just for stage 2?

    Thank you both so much!!
