Just checking in after this post!
I went with three gels for this race, with a plan to take one every 5 miles; give or take, whenever there was a water station conducive to doing so.
Surprisingly, I really favored the GU. I really though I’d like that Honey Stinger one, as well, duh – I love honey and chocolate. However, it was a much thinner consistency and I felt like it was a bit messier! Even though it was my last one and I felt like I had the consuming part down pretty well, I feel like I got sticky hands from that one. Hrmph! And the Gu flavor was really mild – in fact, I really liked the Vanilla Bean – the plain even tasted a little vanilla-y so maybe that is why I liked that one too??
Anyway, thought I’d share what worked for me – glad to know that I know I can DO THE GU 😉
What’s your fave GU? Which ones would you definitely AVOID?!
