I’ve used Ultima (MCM, 2000-2003) and that was even worse on my tummy… I’ve found that gels with caffeine send me right to the portolet or two… Cliff Shot seems to be the least offensive, but Gatorade seems to be better since I can intake a smaller amount (sip) at a time… I suppose if I took a fourth of a gel it might be okay, but I never seem to get the balance of gel & water right…

I did pick up some Cliff Bloks at the MCM expo(had to go look at the Expo since I could take the Metro)… they are like gummi bears but with a similar electrolyte comp as Cliff Shot… I might pick them up from hubby at mile 20 this weekend…I did try them so I don’t think I’ll be violating the ‘nothing new’ rule…

but the “sugar/upset” thing is very real and I’ll admit that twice I’ve almost given up intaking anything else by mile 20 only to come across a Hash House Harrier table, sip about 3 ounces of beer and feel much better, go figure… just wish they had pretzels to go along with it…
