RUNNING FOOD: GU - Roctane
I am addicted to Roctane and it has a tasty flavor. I generally take the Vanilla Orange, even though GU is thick, which why I did not like it at first, is the reason why I like it now. I take it like a pill in the back of my throat and it goes down easy, not sticking to my teeth or my mouth - it is not messy. Prior to that I took more of a liquified gel and it lingered in my mouth, stuck to my teeth and got my hands all sticky. Now with that said, 12 or so in a row, like a 6 hour run, I seems to effect my stomach a just a bit. Now this could be from a number of things like, lack of water or too much caffeine. Who is to say, I might mix it up a bit for a 10 hour run though. It is still my favorite choice.
