They’re phenomenal.

I’d strongly recommend getting a few and doing a review. Their website is

Cheers, Pete

You are certainly not too old 🙂 And I’m pretty sure we’re close enough in age to be siblings, perhaps a little far apart, but still siblings. My mom is one of 7 kids-the eldest and youngest are quite a bit apart!

Gels are so handy and convenient. Given my druthers, I’d stop to eat “real food” but sometimes that’s just not possible. I bought a refillable flask and am going to try out some ideas for a DIY gel with coconut oil, honey, water, and some salt electrolytes, but the consistency I think may be a bit of a bugger. We shall see. Now that I have the Blendtec I can give it a shot.

So excited to read the book! Both you and Pete have so much to share, and I am looking forward to reading the other athlete’s stories too!

Thanks for the congratulations! It’s still a little surreal to me that I have that capability. Fun, though. Really fun. 🙂
