While I wish that I could eat an entire meal mid-run, the fact of the matter is that I don’t have enough space for my utensils in my iFitness belt. Dang it. What’s the next best thing? For me, it’s a combination of sports foods that are:
- Easy to eat
- Easy to digest
- Easy to open
- The wrappers are small enough to shove in my bra when I’m done
- And of course, provide the necessary racing nutrients
One of those sports foods that meets all five of my requirements is none other than the infamous Gu itself. When racing, pop one of these bad boys every 45 minutes followed by a swig of water and you’re body will be delivered a swift kick in the pants that your body needs.
I keep my Gu in jar – I love all of their labels peeking through the cupboard.
Lucky for you and I, the San Francisco Marathon sent me a boatload of Gu (it was practically Christmas at my place) and there’s no way I could eat it all myself, so I wanted to give some away right here on the blog.
So here it is folks, I’m giving away a nice little Twenty-Six & Then Some Gu Care Package – complete with 20 Gus and special little letter written by Lola herself!
How To Enter?
Enter to win the Gu Care Package two different ways:
Leave a comment telling me what you would do with the Gu Care Package
Tweet me (@pagespicer) telling me what you would do with the Gu Care Package
Each comment and tweet will count as one entry. And if you want to go ABOVE and beyond, tell me what you would want Lola to write you in her special little letter if you won.
Ok folks, that’s all it takes to win enough Gu for an entire season. The contest will close on Friday, May 20th, EOD, and I’ll announce the winners on Monday, May 23rd.
Plus, who wouldn’t want a note for this lil’ thang – especially in her new summer tank top?!
