Fueling with hüma!

I can't believe it's almost time to line up at the starting line of my first Ironman race! A huge thanks to hüma Energy for providing me with all the natural energy I could ask for!

Something you may not know is that when I started training for my first marathon, I fueled exclusively with Huma energy gels. It has been over 4 years since I started my journey with hüma Energy gels and a lot has happened since then (namely: suffering with severe plantar fasciitis, having a baby and overcoming pelvic disfunction) but one thing that hasn't changed is that they're still my first choice for endurance sports nutrition.When I first started my journey into the triathlon world back in January, I never thought I would enjoy this combination of sports as much as I do. I've gone from just wanting to try it out to committing to this lifestyle because it's just so rewarding physically, mentally and socially. And I've been so blessed to meet the most incredible, funny, inspiring people through this process!
If you've never tried hüma energy gel before you're in for a real treat! They're easily the best-tasting energy gel on the market! I love that their gels are 100% all-natural and are made with real fruit. They taste a bit like a fruit smoothie & jam mixed together. They are so so good, and wakes your body up in all the right places without getting any negative side affects (ie: gut-bomb)! They are seriously so gentle on the stomach!
When I first started cycling, I couldn't tolerate eating anything on the bike. I would get horribly nauseated about an hour and half of riding. I couldn't have any solid food whatsoever, just liquid carbs. Thankfully after 9 months of trial and error my tolerance for solid foods has matured greatly and I can have quite a few things now. But being able to rely on my hüma energy gels throughout my hard days of training has given me so much peace of mind!
One reason why I was even more excited to try hüma Energy gels during my triathlon training was because I saw that they developed a new gel for athletes that DOUBLES the amount of electrolytes in 1 energy packet! Their hüma Energy gels Plus+ is such an amazing all-natural source of Potassium, Sodium, Magnesium—the electrolytes you need when you're trying to crush an endurance adventure. 
I have also really enjoyed having hüma Hydration Electrolyte drink mix in between gels to keep me hydrated and functioning at my best!

Try it out friends! Once you've tried hüma Energy gels you won't go back to anything else!
