For the first time since I ran my first marathon in 2007, I brought Gu with me on my run. I want to start experimenting now so when marathon number two comes around in October I'll be a pro at what my body can and can't handle. It's been so long since I've used Gu that I had forgotten what it tasted like and was slightly nervous about trying it again. I bought a few different flavors and brought vanilla with me on Saturday. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a runday favorite. The texture was a little strange, and it was thicker than I remembered, thankfully I had water with me to wash it down. But I thought the flavor tasted like vanilla cake batter...yum! I took it around mile 8 and it gave me a nice pick me up for the remaining 5 miles. I was dreading trying these again, but now I'm kind of excited to try the others I bought.
