“I don’t have a thing against strong foods. I like to acquire liquid calories for the most part, and after that, when I get sort of sick of this, and it does not sit in my belly well, I will change to something different just to sort of mix it up a tiny bit.”
When Bitter was beyond the race’s midpoint, he conducted at a 6:32:38 percent speed in the 53-mile mark.
At one stage, he needed to change treadmills to assist him using a lesser room temperature at home.
“I got a bit anxious an hour and a half, two hours because I was beginning to become dehydrated, and I needed to devote another few hours shooting in electrolytes to catch up.”
