Picnic on wheels

I'm loving my newly acquired Fuel Belt bento box for the bike. It fits right behind my head set on the top tube. I stuffed that puppy full of good stuff and enjoyed a picnic on wheels today as I tested it out for next week's half iron distance race (my first). During the hilly 2:20 ride, I took in a bottle with a scoop of Perpetuem, a gel with caffeine, and 6 PowerBar Energy Bites (combined total of about 600 calories). I felt great on the ride and it flew by (thank, Ryan!) but once I finished and had time to think about it, I was famished. Hmmm.

I still have no idea what I am in for next week, but one thing's for sure, I'll be eating well on the bike. I'm just sorry it's not big enough to hold a peanut butter and banana sandwich.
