I’ve realized that it doesn’t matter how long you have been running – you’ll always find new running products to try. It’s definitely always a hit or miss, but the good thing about trying new products is the opportunity to find something that you really like 🙂 Here are a few new products I’ve tried this year.
Science in Sport Gels
As a BibRave Pro, I was lucky enough to test out Science in Sport gels for the past few weeks. I was given 4 flavors to test out, including Apple and Salted Strawberry, which were my favorites! I just placed an order to try out the vanilla and berry gels. I’m hoping they come sometime this week so I can test them out on my long run this weekend. I love these gels because some have caffeine which give me a little kick and they don’t upset my stomach. I’m looking forward to using these gels for my training this summer.
Nathan Peak Hydration Waist Pack
This is a brand new to me item as I just used it a few days ago on my 10 mile run. The Nathan Peak Hydration Waist Pack is roomy enough to fit my gels, phone and car key. In addition, the 18oz bottle holds a good amount of water – definitely necessary for these hot and humid runs. The best thing about the waist pack is that is doesn’t bounce at all – there’s literally nothing worse than feeling a water bottle bounce with each step you take while running. I’m planning to continue to use this waist pack for all my long runs and for the marathon as well.
Although not really a ‘running product’, I think that joining OTF will definitely help my running overall. I welcome any help I can get in the endurance department so I’m excited to see how my running progresses as I continue with the classes.
