Product Spotlight : Gatorade Endurance

Training with the exact Gatorade Endurance products (and flavors) on the course for the NYC Marathon + Philadelphia Marathon was such an incredible opportunity. I have never put this much thought in nutrition leading up to race day, but that has now changed after this training cycle. In the past, I never knew what to expect come race day morning or mid race...especially for a marathon. 26.2 miles is a physical and emotional journey and is not for the faint of heart. A huge part of it is mind over matter, but I have now learned that you can be in control of your tummy. :) Training with the nutrition on the course has proven to be a huge success. For both marathons I didn't have any issues

Product Spotlight : OOfos

I am all about training hard and recovering well, so I was pumped to test out OOfos! With 3 marathons in the past 3 months, my schedule doesn't really allow for any downtime.

Product Spotlight : SPIbeams

Early morning runs just got easier! All my fellow runners know I love to run before the sun, but that is not always safe - especially during my super early training runs (we are talking 4:30/5:00am). I was so pumped to test out SPIbelt's new SPIbeams visor (they have a hat version too)! Now there is no excuse when I forget a light (which always seems to happen). This visor is powerful and easily turns on an off. I love that it has lights in the front and the back. It is comfortable, easy to wear and as powerful as a headlamp (128 lumes)...but much more fashionable! Disclaimer: I received SPIbeams to review as part of being a BibRave Pro.
