Stunning wildflowers in Death Canyon near Fox Creek Pass.
My little packets of pills are working out great for my long runs and I would highly recommend this method to others who do endurance events with Addison's. I put salt tablets in and 5 mg of HC. I take them every hour on the hour (the only way I can remember to take them). It keeps my energy stable throughout the day. In the last few hours, I felt like I was lagging a little bit so I took 10 mg HC all at once and that held me over to the end of the run. I had no trouble sleeping so I don't think I over did the HC.
I estimated the run would be about 25 miles but it turned out to be 40 with 14, 500 vertical elevation gain. I felt really good about how prepared I was. I had most everything I needed to spend the night out there if I had to. The only thing lacking was a backup chapstick. I lost my chapstick half way through and considered asking perfect strangers if I could use theirs!! I toughed it out. My body feels good today but I am a little tired. I will take extra HC today, probably 10-15 mg.

Moose in Moose Meadows, good thing I saw it early. The though of meeting up with one of these beasts kept me yelling loudly and singing badly. I scared off some elk with this technique too.
