Most runners have at least one story about how they learned an important lesson about nutrition or hydration the hard way -- through experience. In my running and racing experience, I've eaten too much, eaten too little, not hydrated properly, and eaten the wrong foods. (Don't even get me started on how I know that Fig Newtons before a run are not a good idea!)
