Do the shots work? Will they make me run faster in a marathon if I consume one a day for the week leading up to the race?

Or not?

They made me pee red

They do seem to help with endurance. But you will be shocked when you go for your post race wee!

They're meant to be good, but I don't like the taste of beetroot. I may see if it's available in a pill form or something that's masked by another taste.

Not sure how concentrated this juice is, but I eat beetroot every day and I'm still slow as hell!!

I don't think it makes you any faster, it just allows you to carry on a bit more at your current pace. However fast or slow that is.

I would just eat more beetroot. I made some amazing chocolate-beetroot brownies last week: now they'll make you eat more beetroot, onomonomonom!

I found the conentrated shots reasonably palatable: a bit like neat Ribena. There is actually some pretty robust scientific eveidence for the endurance effect.
