Thank You, GU!

Because I made a GU gingerbread house that the folks at GU recently saw, they sent me a very generous box of GU - a sampler box plus a huge box of vanilla gel! When I saw all of the goodies I wanted to go for a long run, but I had already run that day so I had to wait...

Monday I ran 18 miles and tried my first GU cherry lime gel which takes just like it sounds (cherry and lime!) and just may be my favorite Roctane gel.

I haven't had much of a chance to use my gels this week, though - I've been sick. I came across this study - athletes engaged in endurance-based physical activity during the winter months are more likely to have upper respiratory tract infections. I believe it! I'm feeling better now and can't wait to try more of my new GU soon, though.


  1. that is the cutest most original gingerbread house i've seen! :) that was awesome of GU to apprecite it!

    oh no! it's hard being sick and trying to run. i STILL feel like i'm trying to catch back up (and still dealing with congestion and drainage - ugh!). feel well soon :)

    I didn't want to read the article about the upper respiratory infections. I'm in denial right now.
