If you are a runner- are you jealous? Or maybe you're thinking- ooh, you just spent some serious cash on running nutrition. Serious cash? NO- should you be jealous- well, only if you like free stuff :)
Late last week I read a post by Steve in a Speedo asking us to guess what magical new product he was sent to sample (he was one of 26...TWENTY SIX TUBES in THE WHOLE WORLD...yeah, they were a little dramatic, but why not?). I saw the tube and thought "hmmm...looks like Nuun but I know that nuun has already announced their new flavours so that can't be it...sooo...well, Gu does a lot of internet promo, so I'll guess it is Gu Electrolyte tabs." And guess what? I was right. Hooray! As usual, however, I worried that being Canadian would eliminate me from the competition, but the promo company (thanks OutsidePR!) decided that I was indeed eligible and I was declared the winner.
I honestly had no idea what I'd get (except that it wouldn't be the new product because that won't be released until April) but was thrilled to bits (and felt a little like frayed laces) when I received the following:
- 2 bags of Watermelon GU Chomps
- 2 bags Cranberry Apple GU Chomps
- 1 bag each of Strawberry, Orange and the new Peach Tea flavoured GU Chomps
- 2 Jet Blackberry GU gels
- 2 Mandarin Orange GU gels (a newer flavour)
- 6 Cherry Lime Roctane Gels (a brand new flavour that I've been curious about)
I'll let you know how I like them (and I'll try to get some feedback from Jordan as well since I will clearly share with him- especially because he'll be running much higher mileage than I will for the next little bit).
Anyone else have a favourite running fuel?
And just to make you jealous one more time:
