- I was offered everything from paper towels to bananas to gum to water at unscheduled stops.

I have to post this:
Four years ago, my younger sisters husband ran NYC.
As he was approaching our group, I held out a banana for him.
The runner 5 feet in front of him grabbed it and moved on.
We were totally flustered.
Ever since then we have had a full bunch and hold them out, one at a time, reserving one until our runner (sister or her DH or who ever) gets to us.

peace & potassium
