Okay, I'm an experiment of one.<br><br>
I um like it. It took a bit, and my first attempts left me a bit rumbly in my tumbly as Tigger would say.<br><br>
But, I ran a hard TM run last week and a 20 miler this past weekend with it along and I found it didn't bother me in the least. I had to drink a lot to get past the foam, and burped a bit, but I found that it kept me hydrated sufficiently and didn't curdle in my stomach like Gatorade does.<br><br>
I also didn't suffer from a sugar spike, but felt strongish throughout the run (16 miles on was a bit rough).<br><br>
I'll manage okay if they mix it properly at the race. No adverse effects yet.

Methinks that some of the oddness is the fact that it isn't heavily sweet. I mean that it doesn't have that overwhelming hit that your Gatorades and Powerades have. I'm getting used to it now and I'm going to mix it at different dilutions to mimic the many and varied conditions it will be coming in during the marathon.

Hey buddy boy!<br>
You are smart to get cozy with it before the big day. Hopefully the mix will be right at showtime.<br><br>
You runnin' OK? No hurts or owies?

Surprisingly none. 20.5 miles yesterday and within an hour I was (admittedly slowly) packing up from a camping trip and loading the van for our trip back home. No aches and pains today. Got me spooked it does.
