remember that time that you finished a long run, proud that you'd finally remembered to stop for water and gels, only to feel just as exhausted as when you'd suffered through without any nutrition at all? or that time you finished a 10k, chugged a bunch of water at the finish line, urinated plenty, but still felt thirsty for the rest of the day?
