I love running and sometimes I need extra energy to get me going. When I found out that I could get that extra energy through chocolate, I was very happy. I got to review Energems Great Tasting Energy Bites on my blog and the product arrive just in time, as I was training for a race. I receive all three flavors of Energems: peanut butter, chocolate mint, and chocolate. Energems has 75 mg of caffeine per serving and B-vitamins and amino acids. There is only 15 calories in each piece.
When I run during the week, I will drink coffee a couple of hours before I run. The caffeine in the coffee gives me that extra energy I need to run fast. Coffee, unfortunately, is not good on race day as it moves things along in your lower bowels. So until now I have resorted to sugar based energy on race day. I love that Energems gives me the caffeine without the problems of coffee and it tastes great.
I tried Energems a couple of days before my race to see how it works. I of course had to try all three flavors. The recommended dose is three candies. I ate the wonderful tasting Energems 20 minutes before I went running. While I was running, I felt more motivated to run my 5 miles without stopping. The Energems gave me the extra energy to make my run enjoyable.
I brought Energems with me to my race, a 5K on Thanksgiving. I again consumed three Energems 20 minutes before the race. I ran a wonderful race and came in 2nd in my age category with a time of 25:15.
