Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer

As a SweatPink Ambassador I get the opportunity to review some amazing products!  I am so thankful I was chosen to review this product from Vega Sport.  I am a long distance runner so I was excited to try The Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer.   The box states it will “increase energy, endurance, and mental focus.” It is also dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free, and as all Vega Sport products, it is plant-based so it is vegan.  I am a huge fan of acai berry so the flavor was perfect for me.

The first time I tried it I poured into an 8 oz. shaker bottle of water.  The texture and color are very natural and your first thought when looking at it may be that it doesn't look good, but don't be deceived by the look!  I shook it first to make sure it was well mixed then added ice.  The taste was amazing to me!  I thought the product was much better tasting than many of the other products I have tried.  The mistake I made was using this on a night run.  It did exactly what it said and gave me energy and I was unable to sleep well that night.  I tried it next on the morning of my long run.  I set out to run 8 miles that morning and was feeling so good I did 10 miles.  I am loving this product!  I also found that it is great in smoothies as well.  I mixed it with a frozen tropical fruit blend and coconut milk for an awesome pre-workout smoothie!

 The ingredient list is also sold me on this product.  The ingredient list is: coconut seed oil, kombucha, yerba mate (leaf), Devil’s claw extract (root), green tea (leaf), rhodiola (root), rosavins, ginseng (root), turmeric (root), ginger (root), as well as sprouted whole grain brown rice syrup, organic palm nectar, natural blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, acai and pomegranate flavors, citric acid, malic acid, red beet powder.  I was happy to see there were no artificial sweeteners added as well. 

If you would like to try this product, and I recommend you do, please go here to order and FUELYOUR BETTER!

Training week 2

Week two of training is complete and boy was it a hot one!  Here's what this week looked like....
Monday - 5 miles on the treadmill
Tuesday - 2 mile run/walk
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 2 mile run/walk
Friday - 4.25 mile run
Sunday - 5 mile run

Texas has hit the triple digits this last week, but we are expecting a cool front and some rain this week and I'm really looking forward to some cooler runs!

I'm getting extremely excited about the Disney Marathon!  We have all of our dining reservations booked and I can't wait to enjoy the parks with my husband.  We have never taken a trip to Disney without the kids and haven't been anywhere without them since 2005!  We are going to have a blast!

Registration for the Disney Princess Half Marathon opens tomorrow!  I so wish I could register for this one too!  Maybe next time.  Two trips to Disney back to back is a little tough to swing.  I'm already saving up for next year though!  My dream is to be able to run them all every year!  I'm going to get there!

I hope training is going well for all my fellow runners!  Happy training!

4th of July

We had an incredible weekend!  We left Thursday evening and headed to Jellystone Park for some relaxing and camping.  It was such a great time with lots of laughter!  We made some amazing memories with some dear friends as well.  The kids really didn't want to leave. 

The park was nestled in the pines of East Texas and had swimming pools, put put golf, tennis, volleyball, fishing, crafts, nature trails, lots of bike riding, and some crazy big bubble for jumping!  I don't think the kids stopped from the time they woke up until they went to bed.  I'm not crazy about camping but I really enjoyed this place.  I loved being able to relax and enjoy the weekend without a to do list.  Getting my husband away is such a chore sometimes but we are so thankful we went!  I hope all of you enjoyed your holiday weekend! 

I've decided taking my good camera along is going to be a must as well.  The iphone photos are just not cutting it anymore!

Happy July!

July is finally here!  Walt Disney World marathon training officially begins for all the runners today!  I'm very excited about this journey.  It's hard to believe I'm really training to run at the happiest place on earth.  Most of you know all know why Disney is so special to our family and why this race is so important to me.  I'm totally going to embrace and soak in this entire experience!  I'm such a believer in dreams and making them come true.  If you can dream it, you can do it!

This weekend we are headed out for a family camping trip!  It's so hard to drag me away from home, but I'm going.  It will be nice to relax and not worry about housework for a few days. I hope all of you enjoy the 4th of July!  Also, happy training to all the WDW Marathon weekend runners!
