Based on recommendation by Sage Canaday, I thought I would give Spring energy a shot. I have been in long distance running for about 4 years now and one thing I always hated were the gels. I was hoping that someone would come up with something that really felt and tasted like real food and not a just a chemical concoction that is too sweet. I think I found that in Spring energy. I ordered a sample pack and tried it during my weekend long run along with their electrolyte pack. The gel tasted really good and provided sustained energy without spikes. The electrolyte also tasted good and has a zing to it and it not just sugary water. I have already recommended this is to a few of my running friends and give out some try., because i’m ordering more 🙂
