Things I love Thursday

In honor of my run this Saturday, I thought I'd share what I use when I run.  I don't like the taste or the funky feeling I get when I drink sport drinks.  It requires a little more forethought that grabbing a scoop of Cytomax or a bottle of Gatorade.  But, in my mind, its worth it.  I got to try this at a boot camp I did last year.  At the end of class, our coaches brought us all one at the end of class.  I love it!  Its refreshing, healthy, and doesn't leave me feeling funky after I drink it.

SPORTea Iced Tea (1-Quart Size), 7-Count Tea Bags (Pack of 4)

The other thing I like on my longer runs is

Gu Energy Gel Chocolate Outrage 6-Pk Model 112
I like the chocolate.  I have tried a couple other flavors, and wasn't impressed.  A friend described the chocolate flavor as brownie mix.

Marware SportShell Convertible Arm Band for iPhone 3G, 3G S (Black)
The last thing I am so glad to have back (I lost mine and had to buy a new one) is my iPhone armband.  I have apps I like to use for running, and on longer runs, I don't like to have to hold my phone in my hand.  Having an armband is great.

What exercise do you like to do and what equipment do you have to have?


  1. Thanks! Great suggestions!

  2. Awesome. I hate that feeling after drinking Gatorade, Accelerade, etc. My husband uses Gu but I haven't tried it.
    I just need my Mp3 player - I don't run that far or fast so I will probably not die of dehydration before I get home :)
