Friday Favorite

For most of the year, I drink Essentia Water before and after running, but in the summer when temperatures are near 100 degrees, I use Trace Minerals Electrolyte Stamina Power Paks to help me stay hydrated.  Being a Texas native, I adjust to the scorching temperatures pretty easily, but water is not enough during summer training.

Why is this my #1 Electrolyte Supplement?

  • 1 gram of sugar per packet
  • 15 calories per packet
  • Gluten Free
  • Allergen Free
  • One 30 count box lasts me all summer in Texas
  • I can drink a little bit before a long run and not get a stomach ache. (Gatorade and other sugary sports drinks do not agree with many runners’ stomachs before running.)
  • After a long 14+ mile summer run in Texas, drinking one packet mixed with 6-8 oz. of water replenishes my energy and prevents me from feeling drained by the heat.
  • One packet can be mixed in as little as 2-3 oz of water.  I use 4-8 oz.
  • There are 7 different flavors.  I like Orange Blast.  The other flavors are Cherry Limeade, Lemon Lime, Mixed Berry, Pom-Blueberry, Raspberry, and Tangerine.
  • I am able to eat soon after a hard summer run when I stay hydrated with Trace Minerals Electrolyte Stamina Power Paks.

With the temperatures as high as they are this early in the year, I am getting ready to order my box of Trace Minerals Electrolyte Stamina Power Paks from Amazon.  They can also be purchased from Whole Foods and GNC.
