While my brain is telling me that salt, sugar, caffeine and water are all good, I am trying not to hurl just thinking about your drink combo

To be clear although I did consider mixing the two I decided it was best not to try it. I've known for a long time that pickle juice was a winner for endurance (pretty sure it was the inspiration for gatorade?) but I've never drank it straight before. LOVED it.

Actual pickle juice or the fake stuff?

For real out of the jar stuff!

I do that all the time - it's amazing. Only thing clinically proven to stop and prevent cramping.

Vinegar has to have something to do with it. Someone gave me mustard packets once when I was desperate with cramps. Downed about 4 of them and it might have been psychosomatic, but it worked

I love the stuff, but I've never taken it during a race. Maybe I'll carry a jar of pickles this weekend...

Gonna need photo evidence of that please! I'll frame it right next to the pick of Glen Gibson with the apple...

Cliff and Kate had a whole jar of pickles in their resupply bag at the Two Rivers this year!

So now I have to know, did they consume the entire jar of pickles AND juice?

I only saw Cliff eat a few pickles out of it, but he or Kate can chime in with details :)

Just seeing this.... yeah I spilled the pickle juice at 2Rivers. Cliff was pissed. He loves that stuff. One of the first times I hung out with him he chugged some in front of me. There was alcohol involved. And I thought it was just to win my affection - turns out he just freaking loves pickle juice.

Considering you guys got married I'm not sure if I should question his judgement in chugging pickle juice to get you to like him, or question yours since it apparently worked?

It is really really good though.

I think it's fair to question each of our judgments.

But half-sour pickles are my jam.
