A few weeks ago, I received word that I had been selected to join the GU Energy Ambassador program. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with a company that I feel is on the leading edge of sports nutrition. Not only are they constantly coming out with new flavors but they are continuing to improve their current product line as well. Like their GU Roctane, which is designed to help you during your toughest efforts.

GU products hold a special place in my stomach, as they were a key factor in getting me through one of the toughest race of my life, Ironman Coeur d’ Alene. The use of GU Chomps and GU Energy Gels throughout the race were instrumental in getting me to the finish line. Nothing like gels for 12 hours huh :)

Over the past few years, I have had an opportunity to try many different flavors. With such a wide variety, you are bound to find one you like.
Just recently I tried my all-time favorite, Banana Blitz. Now I can’t be sure, but I am pretty much convinced they brought this flavor back just for me. Apparently, it had been discontinued, I know crazy, huh? I honestly can’t not even imagine why…it is like having a banana Slurpee, aka the best EVER!!! The gel is only available online, so don’t hesitate because you have no idea what you are missing.
A few other favorites include, Raspberry GU Electrolyte Brew (formerly GU2O) and Strawberry GU Chomps. These things are SO addicting. I have to force myself to not eat them as a snack every single day…btw most days I fail miserably, SO GOOD!!!
But seriously, I would like to that GU Energy for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to working with them and using their products to get me through yet another Ironman which by the way is getting WAY TO CLOSE!!!

You can visit their website here GU Energy.

On another note, Ironman training is in full swing though I am not really sure if it ever stopped. This year definitely feels different, as this time I am trying to focus more on the journey and not the fear of death I had last year.

Until next time...

One minor detail you missed, though. They made the Banana Blitz flavor for you AND me! Flove! :)
