Eat these and run fast!
Gu Chomps were given away at the AZ RnR marathon this year. I let mine settle and age properly for a month and ate them tonight before my run. Many times, orange flavored things are cloying and taste like industrial gas station bathroom air freshener (who here hasn't tried that just once??). These were not like that. They had a pretty good flavor and didn't leave a lingering orange taste morphing into a chemical taste --as I expected. Though not too strongly flavored, these really need a water chaser to dilute and help absorption, and to get the sticky chomp off of your teeth. I probably won't pursue this flavor, but, as Janis sang, free ain't worth nothin, but it's free. I like the Chomp format ok, but still will opt for Gu in its liquid guuuuey format.
I changed marathon training plans this week. I'm going with a slightly modified Higdon novice plan.
