Huma Gel!

If you’ve been following along on our triathlon journey, it’s no secret that we love Huma Gel.

Let’s just let this story speak for itself: I ran my first marathon, the NYC marathon, last year and I have Huma Gel to thank for getting me to the finish. You see, I’m not a very fast runner and although I enjoy running, it’s not my favorite thing in the world to do.

Sometimes it was tough to find motivation to get out there and go for a run. And once my mileage started in increase, I needed to start bringing some fuel along. All the gels and gu’s would make me gag… they are SO sweet.

I live in Nashville and since that’s where the Huma Gel company is based, most of the running stores carry it. So I bought both flavors, they only had strawberry and apples and cinnamon back then, and took them out on my next run. (Side note: I listened to Born To Run during my long runs and was so excited that Huma Gel was made from chia seeds! Maybe it would make me run faster!)

Well, Huma Gel didn’t make me run faster but it was so delicious and energizing that I noticed that I started to look forward to my runs, especially the long ones because that meant I got to eat more Huma Gel! Thanks to Huma Gel, I finished my first marathon and dozens of triathlons without hitting the wall.

Not only is it delicious, it doesn’t upset my stomach and is the ingredient list is full of things I can pronounce. Huma Gel is the only energy gel I use and I’m really enjoying training for my half-ironman because that means I get to have lots of Huma Gel! Here’s how Huma Gel works:



In addition to Strawberry, Apples and Cinnamon, Mango and Blueberry, Huma Gel just came out with 4 awesome new flavors: Mocha, Chocolate, Lemonade and Raspberry, all of which contain caffeine for some extra umph.

Wanna try all 8 flavors of the best energy gel out there? Of course you do! Enter here:

      I hear ya! That’s exactly why I have to bring a stash with me when I travel to a race! The good news is that you can buy them on Amazon now! I think I’m going to ask for a mix pack for Christmas to stock up for the 2015 race season!

    Love Huma! Really want to try the new flavors and I’ve been working really hard on getting my local running store to carry them. So far I just order them online.
