Sometimes on a long run you need to refill your water bottles and don't have the option to fill with sports drinks. Nathan's Electrolyte tabs are the answer.

Cytomax Sports Drink

Cost: 
$15-$30 (depends on size)

When I started training for my first marathon, I was told that Cytomax would be the sports drink offered on the course. So I started training with cytomax and then on race day, I learned they changed to G2. 

I'm told a lot of people can't tolerate cytomax, but I actually love it. I order both the tropical and orange flavor. Cytomax mixes ensure proper hydration, steady energy and reduced fatigue during exercise. In addition to helping with hydration, it helps flush lactic acid, which makes a huge difference in recovery after long runs.

Amphipod RunLite 4 Hydration Belt

Cost: 
$45

When I started running, I resisted a fuel belt for a long time. I instead perferred the CamelBak hydration system. My coaches predicted I would come around and I did. Now I can't think of not running without the Amphipod belt. Hydration is critical for all runners, but especially in hot climates like Arizona.
