    All I seem to drink is Mineral Water, I like everything, I just prefer the simplicity of water.

    I don't drink soda. I've never really liked it much, except for mountain dew which I'm not allowed to drink because the massive amount of caffine make me go sort of crazy. heh.

    I drink Dr. Pepper a lot on vacation, but other than that I only drink soda if I'm at a party and I'm really thirsty.

    I love soda, but I don't drink it that much. The only time I really drink it is when we go to my grandparent's lake cottage on weekends over the summer... But then I usually have seltzer... occasionaly coke or sprite zero.

    Although the effects aren't really comparable, a glass of beer will have less harmful effects on a runner (once the alcohol is out of the system) than a glass of soda.

    The high sugar just contributes empty calories, adding useless weight that make your heart work harder. The carbonation compromises basic cell respiration, making capillaries less efficient, and making it harder for the mitochondria to use the fuel.

    But of course, just drinking a glass of water would be better than both of them.

    My xc coach was always complaining about me drinking Mountain Dew all the time...so I stopped drinking it when season started. It's kinda funny though because I'll go tell him that I haven't had a Mountain Dew since July but that doesn't mean I haven't had any other kind of pop. lol Just a sprite here and there.
