Not a fan of bottled sports drinks? Are you looking for a fuel that will hydrate your body?
 
When it comes to fueling your body, you’ll want a source of carbohydrates (juice), electrolytes such as sodium and potassium and fluid (water). Putting together a sports drink can be very easy. Remember, make and drink these recipes during training several times before race day to see how your body responds to them.
