Energy Gels scare me.
What is it, why should I use it, how will it affect my ability to have kids years from now? I think these are all valid questions. Tomorrow we are slated to run a ten-mile long run, and I was thinking it might be a good opportunity to simulate the actual race conditions a little bit. Having water drops around Buffalo, and water on my belt will keep us hydrated. To help us with energy, on race day the B.A.A provides us with PowerBar Energy Gel at mile six. This will be roughly an hour into our run then, and I thought it might be a good idea to test the product out ahead of time to see two things. First, does it do anything? Second, will it ruin my stomach?
