    Don't get the license right now unless you plan to do more than six races -- it'll expire at the end of this calendar year. Just pay the $10 fee at each race you enter.

    Take what you might need, use what you do need. Eat before you're hungry, drink before you're thirsty. If you bonk, you failed to address one of those these issues. Where's the confusion?
