Ultima Replenisher comes in little packages that look like Kool-Aid packages.  They are advertised as “the balanced electrolyte drink” with no artificial flavors or sweeteners.

I was pretty sure that I was going to try one package, go “Meh” and give the rest of the box away.  I tried one package, went “Meh” and drank two packages a day for the rest of the week.  It has been pretty warm here in the Bay Area for the past two weeks and I have not had any problems with cramping while I have been drinking the Ultima Replenisher.

The replenisher comes with less supplements than I get with my daily multivitamin but I drink it anyway.  I don’t know how, why or if it works but I assume that if it helps me drink more water before a run and it does not make me sick it is a good thing.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, when you do not consume enough electrolytes before and during a run, you lose the ability to absorb water.

It is a nice light drink that you can have before a run and it’s not so loaded with electrolytes that you have to burn it off after consumption.  Ultima Replenisher is something I plan on keeping around as a morning drink to keep in my system before my lunchtime workouts.

That is a hell of a compliment considering the fact that I go for weekly 9-11 mile tempo runs at lunch while carrying no water.  I am on the edge on these long runs and every bit of water I can absorb before I leave is a big plus.
