Somebody's been doping...

It's Wednesday night, so I was just putting the trash out on the curb like I normally do. I wasn't snooping around. I really wasn't. This piece of paraphernalia, bedaubed with a sticky substance , looked suspicious and caught my eye. Upon closer inspection I thought, "My God, somebody has been doping!". I've never really seen an energy gel package before, so I can't be sure of this. Ok, I take that back. There was that one time in college where I was experimenting with energy gel...but I didn't swallow it. Anyway, what should I do? Should I confront my family members about this?

I tried Cytomax recently and honestly thought it worked.

I am not sure that it works better than the old secret duo of Red Bull and Rice Crispie Treats though.

Yup, you caught me.... it also works well with toys while you're at work.

Shoot my secret is out. Y'all thought I was eating bon bons all day, huh?

Toys?

Tim said...

Energy gel is like legal doping. Those things have brought me home after bonks that otherwise would have turned me into buzzard food.

Clif Blocks and Sharkies are pretty good. It's like eating handfuls of candy while riding. And you tell yourself it's ok, because they have "electrolytes". Whatever the hell those are...

Tank...Fetch!

I've recently started using the energy gels on longer rides. You're right...they help you keep going when you think it's time to take your suicide pill.

Random drug testing. It's the only way. You know, energy gels are just one step away from the real horror - organic fruit. Better keep an eye open for the tell-tale signs.

I'm still waiting for more details on the whole "toys while you're at work" thing, but perhaps that's for another blog.

Kristy said...

Tim, isn't it more fun to use your imagination?

Tank, wrong kind of toys.

Lauren, I like Cliff Blocks, and Sharkies too. shh... even bon bons. I really like energy gels because you can grab them while riding or on those quick stops. However, some flavors are better than others.
