As a person firmly committed to hating gels, I’m going to have to revise my opinion. I’ve just been sent a package of sneak preview gels from GU for Trail Running magazine and they’re doing these super unusual, tasty-sounding flavours for 2015 – I can’t believe I’m actually looking forward to eating a gel!
I can’t wait to try the Root Beer one in particular, and the Salted Watermelon is already making my mouth water. I know my coach Rory Coleman would say, “You’re sposed to try gels out before you race with them,” but these sound so yummy I will definitely be taking at least one of these per day, along with my Honey Stinger ones, during The Coastal Challenge Costa Rica 6 marathons in 6 days race 1-6 Feb. Flying in 8 days!!!
