I like running with gum. I helps distract my mouth from muttering obscenities on steep hills or after passing trash along urban trails, and, more importantly, it helps combat an annoying dry mouth. So I was keen to give Run Gum a try to see how the calorie-free energy boost from caffeine, taurine, and b-vitamins compared to my usual corner store mint gum du jour. Created by Olympian Nick Symmonds, Run Gum is a great addition to any runner’s bag of tricks to combat fatigue on a run or fading motivation to get out the door in the first place. MSRP: $22.49 per 12-pack box. Rungum.com //
