80 marathons and counting…

I have just completed my 80th marathon. I started using SOS on my 56th marathon – Wellington 2013 – and have used it on every marathon since except one and it was a bad experience – I was helping one of our Achilles athletes get through to the start line in his wheelchair and didn’t have time to dash back and grab my SOS so I used the electrolyte they had on the course. When I finished the marathon I was noticeably dehydrated, it took me longer to recover than usual, and I actually found the marathon harder going than I had anticipated. It was good, as I had got a bit blasé about running marathons without SOS as I’d been running them so well and feeling so good.

With the Achilles athletes that I coach, their marathons can take them considerably longer than your usual mid-packer, and they can be out there for 6 to 8 hours, so it’s really important to me that they are well hydrated and in the best possible shape they can be for their event. SOS has worked so well for me that I wanted the best for them.
