Elete electrolyte + raidlight fuel belt (trail flask girl)

I went to campers corner again yesterday and bought the elete electrolyte price: SGD12.
Why this? Well, it saids 'makes pure electrolyte water that tastes like water. Turn any drink into a sports drink.'
I tasted this twice previously when my friend wantet and I did the trail training run and she is the one introduce me with this. For me, I am quite conservative with the drinks especially when I am so tired.
I prefer nature and tasteless drink. For the drink that have taste I like it in a very cold so that the cold took over the taste.
Today I tested this with the new raidlight fuel belt I bought from Lantau base camp outdoor stores. With the small 150ml bottle, I put in 10 small drops and the water now taste like salt water and I was able to finished my non-stop 19km run without having cramp. (Today is bloody hot out there, is good to have this for self-hydration in the long run).
Now talk about the raidlight fuel belt (trail flask girl in pink). I bought this last week when I first time traveled to Hong Kong. People always said HK is a shopping heaven. I only say, yes, it is. I bought the fuel bet in discounted price. Normal price hkd389, after 25% discount, hkd291.76. (~sgd48).
The belt come with 4 raidlight bottles 150ml each. This is sooooooo cheap. As those belt I fuel belt I saw in Singapore definitely more than sgd48. I can't direct compare the price as I was not able to find the raidlight products here in Singapore yet. How is the belt? It's comfortable than I thought. The belt will not shift up down or side through out my almost 3 hrs long run today. It just fix in place. There were two zippers on the belt. It looks small but it's link inside where you can put in a lots of stuff. How about my iPhone? Well, my iPhone is too fat and not able to fit into the small zipper. But hey, it's a fuel belt suppose for you to put your gel, tablets or electrolyte.
I am happy with this two combinations. The belt, bottles and the elete electrolyte ,
The combinations is good enough for you to do your training run for more than 10km . Save all the troubles buying drinks from the store, hold your thirst until you saw one or even bringing coins in your pockets for the drinks from vending machine. With the belt, you even can test your fuel intake before the race day, when is gel time, when will be the salt time etc.
Happy running!! Hope you enjoy your workout.
p/s: one thing i like about the small pocket size elete, its quite handy, especially when you travel.
