My first experience with Ultima was actually during a half marathon trail race on Lake Chabot on New Year’s Day. I stopped at a hydration station to get water and snacks. I was told there were some electrolytes and I was asked if I wanted a cup. Up to that moment, I didn’t like electrolytes. The taste of the ones I had tried was artificial, they were full of calories, and other additives. I explained to the volunteer why I didn’t want to try the electrolyte solution. He was quick to explain that it was Ultima. I said, “what’s Ultima?” He pulled out the bottle from around the table and showed it to me. It said it had natural flavors and no calories. I was impressed. I then decided to give it a try. It was the extra kick I needed to keep going on the race.
Later, as a BibRavePro, I was asked to sample Ultima and to give my honest review. After my positive previous experience, I agreed. Jim often goes on extreme diets which include riding his bike for 9-12 miles daily in addition to running with me. I told him that we had just gotten some Ultima in the mail and he should try some. Little did I know that meant he would take it all and I would not see it again until he ordered a refill and the second box arrived in the mail. He loved the taste, the variety of flavors, and of course, you can’t beat zero calories.
