This morning I had a hot, sweaty and killer business meeting / four mile run in the woods. It’s nice to work for a boss who understands that the release of endorphins is simply good for business.
With this heat, I was craving something more than just water when I got home. I remembered that Gatorade had sent me some samples of their new G Natural and G2 Natural drinks a few weeks ago. No time like the present!
According to their press release: “Made with natural flavors, colors and ingredients, G Natural and G2 Natural have the same performance and hydration benefits as original Gatorade Thirst Quencher and G2, with a great taste that athletes will love. The new, natural offerings are now available exclusively at select Whole Foods stores.”
“G Natural and G2 Natural are part of Gatorade Perform 02 in the G Series – a Gatorade line-up that provides scientifically supported products that offer the fuel, fluid and nutrients athletes need before, during and after activity. Gatorade Perform 02 products, including G Natural and G2 Natural, help athletes replace fluids and replenish electrolytes during physical activity.”
I have to say, I really liked this drink. Some people are not fans of these types of drinks when on runs, but I have always been a big fan. The electrolytes put some pep into my step, and knowing that what I’m drinking isn’t chemically based is a huge selling point for me. And the orange flavor was refreshing!
Thank you, Gatorade, for sending me these products. I will absolutely be on the lookout for your G Natural and G2 Natural products next time I’m in Whole Foods. I see many sweaty summer runs in my future.
