Cheers man - did u get that from Power of 10?

I've been injured on and off for a couple of years so haven't run a park run in ages!

How about you? do you run?

I do, but I'm currently a minute behind your time - and not far off 3x your age ! There's still time for me to catch you !

Calories are a measure of energy.  If it contains bugger all calories, it contains bugger all energy.  Add a few teaspoons of sugar to this and it'd be an energy drink; right now its an exercise in marketing.

This is trading on the sketchy evidence that taurine can boost mental alertness and/or performance.  Well, maybe, but even if it's true the effect is so far down the performance altering list after adequate fluids, sugar and electrolytes that its main boost is to the finances of whoever's flogging the stuff.  Drink Robinsons, save money.
