CALIFORNIA WORKOUT SUPPLEMENTS
GU Energy Labs: Berkeley-based GU Energy Lab's energy gels are among the most disgusting substances I've ever put in my mouth. And, as Dumbledore might say, that's saying something. However: (1) in my experience, all energy gels are equally gag-inducing -- i.e., I've never found an energy gel which I hated less than GU's; and (2) GU's energy gels do a really good job of helping me enjoy long runs. In fact, the GU-and-endorphins combination that hammers me at mile 6 has been known to make me giggle. So I recommend GU's energy gels. Just be sure you're near a drinking fountain when you eat one, and wash it down as fast as you can.
