I got my periodic mailing from Zombie Runner and saw that there's a new electrolyte kid on the block to compete with Nuun. I've gotten quite fond of Nuun in my long run training; it's this little effervenscant (sp?) tablet that you drop in 20 ounces (or so) of water. You get a light taste (3 flavors), no sugars, and lots of electrolyte goodness. Nuun, I will tell you, is also a sponsor of the New Mexico Outlaws. I went to the Zym website to investigate.

Zym, you're a wanna be. You'll never convince me to leave our precious, beloved Nuun. NEVAH!


  1. I used a couple tablets thursday and liked it a whole lot more than the last time I tried it...I may be a future fan...
