Tim Pitt

"I took two of the new Mango Orange Organic Energy Gels during my 26 mile trail run today. I really liked these!  They may be my favorite flavor from Honey Stinger.  They are not as viscous as the other gels on the market that I have tried, so it went down very easy.  I really liked the orange flavor too.  Honey Stinger has hit a home run with with one!"

Tim Pitt has been on the Fleet Feet Racing Team since 2011 and recently set a personal best in the marathon with a time of 2:54 in Birmingham at Mercedes Marathon.

Katie Maehlmann

"I tried the Honey Stinger Mango Orange today on my 12 mile run.  It was my first long run in over two months, so I knew I would need fuel at the halfway point.  I'm not a big mango fan, but the gel tasted more like mandarin orange to me.  It seemed really sweet, almost like an orange popsicle flavor.  I liked the flavor and the fact that there was no funny after taste.  I ran hills in the second half of my run, and I felt like the gel gave me the boost of energy I needed to really power up them!  I'll definitely use these gels again!"

Katie Maehlmann has been on the Fleet Feet Racing Team since 2004 and owns a personal best time in the marathon of 3:12 and has run a marathon in 24 states.

Eric Charette

"I am in the middle of marathon training and had a key 10-mile race today to test my fitness.  I fueled in advance with the Honey Stinger Cherry Cola Energy Chews, then carried a Mango Orange Gel with me during the race.  At mile 7 when I was starting to fade a little into the wind, I took the gel and within minutes I felt an amazing lift and was able to fight through the windy conditions to make my goal time.  I loved the Mango Orange flavor and it went down easy; without any water!"

Eric Charette has been on the Fleet Feet Racing Team since 2007 and owns personal best times of 2:43 and 1:15 in the marathon and half marathon.
