    Today I tried the GU chomps for the first time and I love them! Probably couldn’t eat them during a run though. I would love to try the improved GU gel or the water tablets. Best of luck to you next weekend!! I’ll be running the 1/2 for the 3rd time. Still haven’t gotten up the courage to challenge the full yet, but one day!

    Peanut Butter and Strawberry/Banana — sounds fantastic!!!! This is going on my 2nd year of racing. I am over 50 yrs old and have 2ndary progressive MS. I have progressed from using a walker to running and placing in local 5k races. Currently training for a 10 mile race in May. This will be a HUGE accomplishment and dream but, I am determined. I NEVER say NEVER — you just have to try…

  82. Hi, I love Gu! My favorite is the Mint Chocolate gel, and most of the Gu Brew flavors. I followed you both on Twitter and facebook, shared the giveaway on facebook. and subscribed to your blog!

  83. I joined the GU Facebook page, and my Facebook user name is lsuvollie, as well as Running4Him. I like the GU Chomps the best. I find that biting them in half and chewing them slowly helps me more than eating them all at once. The flavors taste nice, not too sweet, and give me the mental clarity I need when my glycogen is running on low.

    I would love to try the peppermint that people were raving about during the holidays. I have never tried Gu – but definitely want to – just started running 4 months ago and have mostly done 3-4 miles during lunchtime, but will start doing long runs soon.
