A Great Photo

This exact bottle has been a part of my life for nearly 4 years.

Actually, lots of these exact bottles have been a part of my life for nearly 4 years.

In fact, there is one drawer in our kitchen that looks a lot like this picture.

About 4 years ago, I stumbled upon Nuun tablets as a solution to my grave electrolyte needs. They were a life saver for my running. Unlike Gatorade, they have no sugar, so no more sticky hands. Unlike Gatorade, they are much more concentrated and I can use more than one tablet to a water bottle. Like Gatorade, Nuun is an electrolyte supplement. And a tasty one.

I don't use Nuun so much any more - not since I found Hammer Electrolyte tablets. Tablets allow me to drink straight water and regulate my intake of salt, potassium and magnesium easier, I can lightning-speed get electrolyte into the blood stream by dissolving a salt tablet right in the mouth, and finally, salt tablets don't fizzle like Nuun and cause the water bottle to overflow as it gets bounced around.

Nonetheless, along the way, I bought a Nuun bottle to hold my dissolved Nuun tablets. Then I bought two more bottles. And, like many thing in my life that I've found that I really like, I got more and more Nuun bottles. Maybe I have an insatiable appetite for good things.

So, while I don't take Nuun tablets very often anymore, I have about as many Nuun bottles as in this picture. One last thought, I have a friend who runs almost everyday. I'll see if she could use my extra Nuun tablets.

I used to love Nuun...but found out it just isn't enough for me - at ATR of all places. Nuun didn't provide enough electrolytes for me and that's why I bonked so hard. Funny though, I never had problems on any of my steamy training runs. Also a lover of Hammer Endurolyte tabs now!
