    You know, the energy drink? Is it any good? Anybody know of a way to get it shipped to Canada?

    Why don't you take caffeine pills instead of expensive drinks. Same effect.

    I now avoid all these energy drinks like the plague.

    'Red Bull' has got caffeine, so I would never touch that.

    'Lucozade Sport' I can't drink any more because those sugar compounds it contains give me
    stomach aches.

    These drinks are all just so expensive, any way.

    I was running first marathon, and tried Red Bull on the last 7-8 km, acctualy it really helped me to
    finish, at least I thought so, and who knows what would happen,

    Therfore I tried once again to drink RedBull before and during the race, unfortunately the
    result was horrible, i felt more and more tired although I think I was well prepared, the result
    was failed,

    Now I am running mostly on isostar or isotonic candies, gels etc, It is very helpfull, as far as i
    know cofeine is only helpful for couple minutes- works very fast, but afterwards it can cause more
    problems then help, From the other side i am not sure whether it is healthy to drink energy dinks,
    So I suggest you Isostar,

    Ciao, Adam

  5. Who drinks Red Bull? The people that P.T. Barnum referred to, in his famous quote. And he was
    right......there IS one born every minute.

    No, it isn't the same, Stephen.

    Mike- I don't drink it often- overstresses the adrenals and I wind-up with a negative energy effect
    the next day. Not a good situation. But when I have no energy to start with, I will drink a Red Bull
    in order to get through a work day. Workouts are somewhat different. I start some workouts feeling
    very unenergetic. But if I persist, I actually start to feel great as the workout progresses. I'd
    recommend that approach to you as well.

    Peace, Brian

    Yep. I read that the caffeine-taurine combination is synergetic. Plus I just talked to one of my
    customers in the U.S. and he is going to bring some across for me. Problem solved! Thanks for the
    reply Brian.

    By the way, any drink which contains Gurana Bean extract contains caffine... even if caffine is not
    mentioned anywhere on the label. CBC MarketWatch did a segment about this recently and some of those
    new trendy non-carbonated drinks were found to contain the equvilant of 10 cups of coffee... again
    without caffine being mentioned anywhere on the label. So if you want to avoid caffine, look out for
    the pesky "Gurana Bean".

  9. There's a chocolate bar on sale in the UK called "Boost" that contains glucose and Gurana. I know
    several xc runners who use it. Whether it helps or not is another issue. Martin

    Your problem was in using red bull before the race. You had a sugar "up" that then resulted in a
    drop during the race. Running distance, red bull could be a help after you're well-into the run.

    I have experienced the same thing. I take powerbars on my long runs where I need extra fuel. I find
    that chewing them for 5 minutes takes my mind off running :).

    What have you done to get extra fuel on the run?
