I am running my first ultra in August. It is "only" 43 miles but that is significantly further than I've done before! I welcome and appreciate any advice. I am doing a distinctly amateur blog about the experience.

Good luck! I will be doing my first ultra (50 miles) in June. The furthest I have gone before is a marathon. I have done a bunch of those, though. If you find things that work well for you, I would love it if you shared. Right now I am trying to figure out fueling. My body doesn't handle white or brown sugar very well, so I stay away from that. And my stomach revolts if I have more than 5 gels! If you have any advice, I would appreciate it! Good luck with your training and race!
