Energy Gel Addict
Energy Gel Addict was spin off by two avid runners. Our simple aim is to make running enjoyable and injury free so that we can continue to pursue this hobby and we enjoy interacting with fellow runners and athletes.
For a start, we were not born runners. Things changed when we read “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall. We were inspired by the book and the Tarahumara runners. Soon we started to run regularly. Along the journey, we fine tune our running postures and we were exposed to various running techniques like Chi Running, POSE method etc.
As our running mileages increased, we found that it is not only mentally demanding but also physically challenging. Gosh we discovered we missed out the nutritional aspect! For example, before a run, one could load up on carbohydrates etc by consuming a proper meal. However, we know having a big meal before a run there’s a high chance one will throw up everything during the run and we are sure that isn’t going to be a very pretty sight! On the other hand, we also cannot run on an empty stomach as we need energy to sustain our runs and to enable us to perform at our best.
Thus we decided to find out more about the diets of professional runners and athletes. To be honest, we were plain lazy, we wanted something simple and yet effective. And that’s how we discovered Energy Gel or Sports Gel. Energy Gel is so conveniently packed, one could consume an Energy Gel pack before the run and even during the run itself. Sounds cool right! Energy Gel is able to give you the energy boost you need fast. Not only that, Energy Gel also provides you with the necessary micro nutrients needed by your body.
Actions speak louder than words. I first tested GU Gel for my Army 2.4km test run. It was a remarkable improvement, I beat my personal best timing by 20% and at the end of the run I don’t even feel exhausted! Not only that both of us also tested and used Energy Gel for our 10km race and we completed the race in less than one hour. We strongly believe that Energy Gel works! Energy Gel is very beneficial for athletes participating in endurance sports like running, marathon, triathlon, biathlon, dragon boating, cycling, swimming, sailing etc.
Moving forward, we are working towards our first marathon run! And we will definitely be supplementing our trainings with Energy Gel. So let’s have fun and enjoy running together, see you over at the other end and remember to replenish your Energy Gel!
