Before UCAN, I would always be so hungry during all of my runs (not a pretty picture). I typically head out of the door before 5am and have a hard time waking up early enough to really eat anything beforehand. UCAN has been a game changer because I can consume it 15-30 minutes before my run without any negative side effects like bloating, feeling full or any other GI issues. I have been consistently using UCAN to fuel up in training runs and races and couldn’t be happier with the outcomes!
