It's A Giveaway!

You read it right!

It's about that time.  Finals are over, I have about a week of summer and I want to spread the love.

As you saw, I ran Rock the Crossroads 5k the first weekend of July.  At the finish line, I was handed a few samples of a supplement.  I brushed it off.  Honestly, how many times have you been pushed a protein powder, or a water enhancer or a vitamin at the end of a race and in turn told it will change your training?  A lot.  So yeah, it took the little piece of card stock and shoved it in a bag, and ignored it for about a week.

Until, I was cleaning out my car a week later and found it. 

It was hotter that nuts outside.  I was tired and I thought, what the heck?  And gave it a try.

I am not a supplement gal.  Apart from the few months where I took a Flintstones multivitamin, I have never gotten into vitamins, supplements, enzymes or anything of that ilk.  There are people in my life who pop horse-sized supplements by the handfuls, and swear they increase their quality of life.  I feel great as is, so why do I need them?

The bottom line is, I don't NEED them.  Who really does?  

The other bottom line is, after trying the supplement that hot steamy day in July, I felt incredible.  I cleaned out my car, and got a lot other odds and ends done.  So I did some internerd research about the vitamins and the company.

Enter: Life Equals  A Kansas City, born and raised company that developed a product based on the desire for a wholesome energy supplement sans the sugars, calories and the icky stuff.  They partnered with Vitamin Angels and donate an equivalent amount of children's multivitamins to undernourished children with each sale.

The Focus + Energy supplement, which what started it all, is a blend of B vitamins, herbs (including guarana a natural source of caffeine) and amino acids.  

I don't promote anything on TBB without it being road tested.  So I decided to be a guinea pig for a week for you guys.  I spent one week of marathon training and supplement taking.  The verdict? It get's my seal of approval.  I did not use it for energy during the runs, but took it afterward to prevent that post-run slump that occurs a few hours after.  You know what I'm talking about.  Best news is: no jitters. 

Life Equals has agreed to provide 4 lucky readers with their very own Focus + Energy experience.

How do you win?
I'm not going to insult your intelligence and pretend you've never seen one of these before.

Extra Bright, Baby

Whatevers, I am dedicated to the TBB and you TBBians out there who read this novel of nonsense.

So my friend Issac recently sez to me:
"Julia, you  make these faces that in person just make no sense they are so weird and then when I see the picture, they make sense and they are hilarious."

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

Ok, Isaac. Touche.

5k Winner Profile

Kari H.

Age: 27
City: Kenyon, MN
When I started running: I started the C25k early this year and jumped into full on jogging in March!
Favorite thing about running: The feeling of accomplishment afterward!
Running goals for this year: I entered myself in Grandma's Half Marathon lottery for the race in June and was selected! That's actually what motivated me to get going with daily running. I figured that there are many people who would have loved to have been selected in the lottery, I CAN NOT BLOW THIS OFF! :-)
Fun quirky running fact about myself:...umm...Prior to 2010, the last time I "ran" was the physical fitness enforced mile run in 10th grade (1999), and I never was able to finish the mile run without walking! I know know that running is 98% mental...we are capable of anything we put our minds to and you can be a "runner" even if you weren't a "natural born runner" :-)

Kari will be running the 8th Annual Time to Fly 5k to benefit Children's Cancer Research Fun.
The race is in June, and TBB can't wait to hear how she does!
