what you probably need to do is just experiment and see what works best for you on your long runs. for me, i found i just cannot do gels. they leave me sick to my stomach. last marathon i used power bars - a few bites at a time starting after mile 10 and drank only water, and i did much better. some people can handle gels which, if you can, would probably be your best bet. easy to go down, easy to carry. just like the power bars, however, i recommend a little at a time. i tried chugging the gels. not a good idea for me. quick rush and then big drop. hmmm, perhaps that's why i got sick?!
