I have never been a runner, and decided to take up running at age 50. And I have never been one to drink a lot of water. So one of my issues was not having enough electrolytes in my system. I have competed in multiple 5Ks and 10Ks, half marathon and one full marathon. I have not had issues with cramping during my 5K runs or my 10K runs. I did however have cramps at the end of my half marathon. The Day I ran the full marathon I had not taken in enough liquids or electrolytes prior to the run. At mile 10 my calves started to get tight. So I found a friend that had bottled electrolytes. They helped a little for the next 6 miles. At mile 16 both my calf muscles twisted, and I thought I was going to fall down. The next 10 miles every mile I had to stop and stretch my calves so that I could continue running the marathon. I found out that day that electrolytes are incredibly important for your body and its function during exercise, especially running. Since getting the electrolyte strips from sportsfoodinc, I have had no issues with any kind of cramping during my long runs. I can hardly wait to use them on my next half marathon or marathon race. My experience was so bad with my first marathon that I have to do it again. I want to be prepared better. I did all the training that was required, I just did not Hydrate and pour in electrolytes prior to the run. I can’t tell you how glad I am to have been introduced to these strips.
