    What a great list! You have a very interesting life and many accomplishments to take pride in. Thanks for asking a couple questions on my blog. I’ll write a post about my training schedule. GU’s are gels that you take for energy on long runs. There are many brands (Hammer, Clif Shots), but sometimes people just refer to all energy gels as GU. If you are running a half marathon, you should think about experimenting with them if you aren’t already. They may help you feel and run better in the last part of the race. During a half marathon, I usually take one around mile 6 or 7. I usually feel a lot better after taking one.
    Congrats on your list. Can’t wait to see marthon finisher added to it! :)
