NYT Exposes My Secret to Long Summer Walkabouts

When I first saw the above sign at the gas station at 15th and U Streets, NW in August, ’07 I wrote that God Does Exist. Now the New York Times writes:

In a new study, he reports that young male recreational athletes who drank a syrup-flavored ice slurry just before running on a treadmill in hot room could keep going for an average of 50 minutes before they had to stop. When they drank only syrup-flavored cold water, they could run for an average of 40 minutes.”

And I just thought they tasted good.

  • can i still find this on the corner of 15&U?

  • I don’t know about U Stbut you can find a brand spanking new Slush Pup machine at the Capital City Diner at 1050 Bladensburg Rd NE

  • Prince Of Petworth

    Nice! Blue raspberry is the best! The machine at 15th and U is out of service during the winter but should also be back on line soon.

  • Not slush puppy specifically, but I’m a huge fan of ice slurry drinks. I like coke icees, myself. When I was hugely pregnant all through a sweltering DC summer, they really lowered the body count.

  • I’m with WDC. Coke Icee’s are far superior to Slush Puppies.

    • No way!!! Slush Puppies rock my world. They were a childhood favorite and I’m not sure I knew they still existed. Can you still get them at that gas station?

  • Point for Slush Puppies…They rule over Icees and Slurpies.

  • Why isn’t that dog wearing any pants?! Please, think of the children!!!
