How do folk fuel a 10k? It seems a bit borderline as to whether you would take a gel mid race or not? I am also diabetic so can get a bit weebly if I run out of glucose on a training run. I am back running after a 10 year break and have my first 10k on Sunday and have forgotten what I did before.

I don't think you need to fuel a 10km esp. if you have something to eat an hour or so beforehand, but I have no clue re the diabetes (sorry). Good luck x
