Four things keep me going on my long runs:
1. iPod – I listen to all the songs on shuffle
2. Water – I carry a hand-held water bottle and refill it every 4 miles
3. Energy gel – I consume a packet of gel every 4 miles
4. Beefy – he meets me every 4 miles to supervise my gel consumption, refill my water bottle, and give me encouragement*.
*At least I think that's what he's saying. It's hard to hear him over my iPod.
