It’ll help you move!

I haven't been able to notice any performance difference with them (I'm a decent runner for my age), but that's not the reason for the two stars for me. All gels ar sort of weirdly viscous, but this was like shampoo with sugar in in. As unpleasant as that was, my biggest issue was that the first time I tried one, I barely made it home from a five mile run and chalked it up to just normal running GI issues. Today I tried another before a 2 hour long run, and after nearly gambling and losing at around mile 3, I ended up having to stop and find a bathroom two more times before the end of the run. Not sure this is so helpful if the performance gains are mitigated by frequent stops to the thunder bucket.
As a bare minimum, try this on a training run before loading up on race day.
