I started using e-Gel during my training for the Marine Corps Marathon. I had tried (and gave up on) other gels because my stomach couldnt’ handle the heavy consistency, and also because they just didn’t seem to add very much edge to my performance.
A running club friend suggested I give e-Gel a try. Running in the typical East Coast summer heat and humidity this summer, I couldn’t help but feel the immediate bounce from e-Gel – for some reason it absorbs faster than anything else I’ve tried. I decided to buy a box and go with the Crank PR guarantee, and I went through the remainder of my training season with e-Gel. During that time I easily PR’s a half-marathon and saw training times steadily improving.
My run at the Marine Corps Marathon went very well, and I did PR, so I won’t be getting the free box of e-Gel. Oh, well, I guess I’ll just have to buy another one when I start training in January for my first trip to Boston!
GET YOURSELF SOME OF THIS STUFF! Thanks, Crank!
