After having difficulty in races where my gastric system would ‘lock up’, I found that I simply couldn’t handle gels and electrolyte pills frequently enough to support my needs. I knew that I was still in need of significant calories for my races and a friend introduced me to e-Fuel.
The calorie content and large amount of electrolytes were a perfect balance for my training and racing needs. In addition, because e-Fuel mixes fast and easy, it was easier for me to increase the concentration without worrying about trying to swallow a thick, clumpy drink.
At Ironman Wisconsin I raced with 2 bottles of 4x concentrated e-Fuel (800+ calories per bottle) on the bike as my primary nutrition. Using eFuel helped me surpass my goal and register a 13 hour finish time with no cramping or stomach problems.
Thank you, e-Fuel.
