Tri Berry and Beyond!

I tried the Tri Berry Gu. (Wow, if I had tried the tri during a Triathlon, it would have been a triple homogram.) It was really good and had the desired effect, but here is the strange thing. The gu is clear. I expected a red color. Are all gu's clear? Then I thought, why would they add coloring, your eating it literally on the run. And then I thought, "You lame-ass, is this the best you can think of for a blog entry?"

I just finished a hella week at the factory and I'm pretty burned. I need a day or two of R&R then I will be creative again. I did get two 6+ milers in at fast tempos (around 9 and negative) for both.

My spouse went to Runners Den this week to buy socks and an ITB strap -she has the ITBS now and has it pretty bad. she is out now running 10m with her running partner. Hope all is well!

I'm still partial to the vanilla bean, but have yet to taste the chocolate and coffee flavors. I anticipate gastronomical joy, but in the end, it is what the runner prefers during a race and I feel less guilty with a  citrusy flavor like lemon.

I will purchase Roctaine this weekend and give updated reports. I bet you can't wait!

I like lemon the best. taste like lemon pie. But, lately I've been eating plain old raisins.

Saw you left a post on Adams blog, so I thought I'd stop by for a visit.

I bought a case of TriBerry at the RNRAZ expo last year for super cheap, was my go to flavor for a while. You're working through the flavors pretty well!

I will be anxiously waiting to hear about your Roctane experience! I've only tried the Pineapple flavor and thought it was tasty- good for summer. Haven't yet tried the other flavors.

Getting caught up... that is a REALLY good point on the GUs. I think that they must be all clear if that flavor is! Makes me wonder what all food has dye in it.
