What sources of energy will you rely on to complete the race?  What sources of fluids will you rely on to complete the race?  Do you plan on needing to consume electrolytes during the race? What are you doing to prevent bonking and seeing spots? What are you doing during your 14-week training season to determine what you can eat and what you can drink during the race without getting sick to your stomach?
