After a long marathon run, runners like to refresh with a nice bottle - or ten - of water. But if you've ever run for an extended period of time, especially in high heat, you know that you not only lose water through sweat, but also electrolytes and salts that help keep your energy up.
So if you're preparing a post-marathon reenergizing pack, make sure you either include Gatorade or a packet of instant tea or drink mix that can be added to water for extra nutrients. Watch this tutorial to learn how to make a water bottle treat holder that attaches your packet to your water bottle. The treat holder is embellished with a bird, heart, and flowers for a cheery way to end your journey.
