My first experience with gels

This run was my first experience with gels. I've been hearing on that gels are helping runners avoid hitting the "wall", and I thought I'd try them. I took one yesterday to see how my stomach reacted -- no problem. So, I took one just before I left for the 10 minute drive to the Jordan River Parkway, and I took another one after 1 hour 6 minutes into the run. I don't know if the two gel packs helped me with my great run today, but I'll continue using them for a while to see how things turn out. Whatever the reason was, I had a wonderful run today!

If I do feed them Gels, they might become proactive and chase after people to get more :)
