I have no idea where yesterday went to.  Sorry for no five facts or book review.  No biggie!!  There’s always next friday 🙂


Yesterday, I was given two Gu’s to try today.  I was talking to a couple that are training for a half marathon (her) and a marathon (him).  I was telling them about my problem, and he let me take two Gu’s home. 

I’m not going to lie, I was a little nervous about trying them.  I’m a huge texture person and I was afraid it would kick my gag reflex into high gear.  I had a 7 mile run on the agenda today and I didn’t want to feel like crap after.  So, I put on my big girl pants and tried them. 

Per instructions, I used this one about 15 minutes before I started running

It actually wasn’t too bad.  I took my time with it.  I can not stand anything thick and this is thick.  Not too bad though.  I survived!

45 minutes into my run, I took this one

I slowed to a walk so I didn’t have to squeeze the whole thing in my mouth.  I’m not a huge on banana flavored stuff, but this was pretty good.  I knocked out 7 miles like it was nothing!!  I felt good the WHOLE time 🙂

I’m really excited because I think I have found a solution to the problem.  Come Monday, I will be at the running store investing in some of these bad boys 🙂

Please disregard the tile of my kitchen floor 😉


Question of the night:

What is your running/exercise fuel?


Hey there!! I'm April. I'm the writer here at Motor City Runner. I'm 26 years old and have a passion for running, all things fitness, healthy eating (most of the time), and everything sweet!! I am also training for my first half marathon. Feel free to stick around and watch as I make the journey to 13.1 miles!!
