$15-$30 (depends on size)

When I started training for my first marathon, I was told that Cytomax would be the sports drink offered on the course. So I started training with cytomax and then on race day, I learned they changed to G2. 

I'm told a lot of people can't tolerate cytomax, but I actually love it. I order both the tropical and orange flavor. Cytomax mixes ensure proper hydration, steady energy and reduced fatigue during exercise. In addition to helping with hydration, it helps flush lactic acid, which makes a huge difference in recovery after long runs.

Recently cytomax was reformulated with Stevia. Some people like the difference and some don't. Personally, I can't tell the difference. Before my big races, I've had cytomax as part of my pre-hydration ritual and had some in my hydration bottles on the course. For training runs, I like to have a glass before I head out as well.
