“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Recharge Your Run- Ultra Fuel Giveaway!

As promised I have a giveaway today!

I told you a few weeks ago about a product that has really changed the way my body handles runs and recovers post run. Twinlab: Ultra Fuel.

This product has changed my life!

Ok. A little too dramatic?


Maybe it hasn't changed my life, but it has sure changed my running.

Go HERE to read my review on Ultra Fuel.

Here is what Twinlab says about Ultra Fuel:
Superior Carb Blend for Superior Performance*
Maximizes Replacement of Glycogen to:
• Extend Endurance*
• Speed Recovery*
• Help Improve Overall Performance*

Vegetarian Formula

How It Works: 

More advanced than simple carb energy products, Twinlab® Ultra Fuel® is a complete performance supplement.*

The superior carbohydrate profile contains an advanced blend of 100 grams of high quality carbohydrates in the form of glucose polymers (the ultimate complex carb), plus important carbohydrate and energy metabolizers.

Clinical studies show that a balanced ratio of complex and simple carbohydrates, like those found in Ultra Fuel, provides energy and enhances recovery, enabling participants to perform longer and produce greater output.* Scientific studies also prove glucose polymers are direct precursors to glycogen synthesis in muscle.*
Ultra Fuel maximizes replacement of glycogen in hard-working muscles, extending endurance, speeding recovery and helping to improve overall performance during training.
* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

 This is what I say:
Before Ultra Fuel:
 The night before a long run (anything over 10 miles) I would carbo load. Most of the time it would be some type of pasta.  The next morning I would wake up for my run with a heavy stomach.  I hate that feeling. Sometimes I would bonk right in the middle of my long run and other times I would bonk post run.  We have ALL been there. You finish a long run and are useless the rest of the day...or for the next 2 days!

After Ultra Fuel:
I have only been using Ultra Fuel for a little over a month, and this is my experience so far....
I take 2 scoops of Ultra Fuel 2 days before a long run, and 2-4 scoops the day before my long run.  I certainly don't have a heavy stomach since it's a liquid and quickly absorbs into your muscles. During my long runs I have notices an increase in my endurance. The biggest difference I have noticed is post run.  I feel like at the end of the run I could keep going and that my recovery time has been cut in half. It really has been huge.  I have felt great!

I have the fruit punch flavor and I am going to be honest; it isn't the most pleasant taste. Taste aside....the results are worth it!

Dean from Twinlab was gracious enough to send me a 52.8oz. tub of Ultra Fuel in the orange flavor for one of you amazing people to try!  
I know you will love this as much as I do!
