I tried it for the first time a couple months ago. I was in week 4 of my training for the NYC Half. For me the biggest difference while training was the aid in my muscle recovery. It was so amazing I was scared to be without it! But what I’m really writing to tell you & anyone who is thinking about trying the Hornet Juice is this. I shaved off 24 minutes from my last half marathon time! I finished the NYC Half Marathon at 1:49:09!! I had absolutely no problem with muscle recovery! After 5 half Marathons & the aid of my Hornet Juice I am planning on training for a full Marathon in 2013.
