What Chocolate Gu Tastes Like at 14 Degrees

Actually, kind of like fudge. It's debatable whether or not that's what you want halfway into a half marathon, especially when you have to chip away at the ice in the water cups to get any liquid. (I'm told, by the way, that Vanilla Gu is the most popular flavor -- my personal favorite is Tri-berry, but the case I bought late last year has already been depleted). There's also a new Mint Chocolate, but I'm not sure I want to be trying that ...

According to the CNN clock, it was 14 degrees at the start of today's Manhattan Half. It's certainly been colder, but it led to a whole lot of different race strategies.

No results yet - I'll cull out the top Brooklyn finishers and post later today.
