Tasty Treats For Your Runs - Honey Stingers

Curious what type of "food" is good to eat during your long runs or high intensity workouts? Over the next few months, we are experimenting with different energy gels, blocks, gu, etc. during our runs.  This week we tried Honey Stingers.

We've heard a lot of great feedback about this company and their products. We ate their Promegranate Organic Energy Chews yesterday morning before the first track workout of our Eugene Marathon training AND they are delicious and effective.  We highly recommend!

What we like about them:
-95% organic
-taste great
-easy to digest (i.e., no stomach issues while running).

What we don't like about them:
-honestly, nothing

Our workout: 1.5 mile warm up, 4x800s with 400 recovery in between and 1 mile cool down. It was a cold day (a sheet of ice covering the track forced us to relocate to the sidewalk) and a little hard to get our legs to turn over and keep our muscles warm during the recovery laps.  We were happy we ate some "food" before our workout.

Planning to mix in these yummy energy treats on more runs. Go out and try them![gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
