Do folks have recommendations for calorie/food intake during (and I guess pre-race on race day) the Ascent?
I will be a flatlander Ascent rookie in August. I'll done a fair number of half and trail half marathons, but only 1 full maration and rarely take more than gatorade for the halfs. In the full, the first 20 were remarkably comfortable, but I bonked pretty good at around 22. I slowly consumed 3 gels over between miles 6 and 18 and have no idea if that was an appropriate amount. Thoughts are appreciated.
