Keep Moving Forward

My life has been in flux lately. It's hard finding a job and it's hard making any sort of future plans when you don't know where you might be in the next couple months. I've had a couple really exciting leads, but I don't want to jinx it yet. All I can say right now is that I had a blast with a really amazing group of people on Wednesday. I'll let you all know because it will be amazing if it all works out the way I'd like it to!

However, now that I have more leisure time, I've been running! It's been great! I'm also excited to try out some more Ignite Naturals products. I have gels and recovery drink coming in the mail which I'm excited to try out and let you all know about it!

I also have a fun fundraiser idea that I'm hoping to let you all in on in about a month and another side project that I'm working on which are keeping me busy and keeping me moving forward!

Next race - still planning to run the Rhode Races Marathon! Should be fun and I'll get to tick off another state in my effort to run a marathon in every state (it's a lifetime goal, not trying to blitz it).

Things I'm looking forward to:
-A nice reflective run on the day of the Boston Marathon
-Signing up for the Dopey Challenge
-Going to Rhode Island to run my marathon and see friends!
-Visit family in Ohio for Easter!

Lots of fun things on the horizon and I look forward to some fun posts!

What are you looking forward to?

Ignite Naturals Team Member!

I'm on the team!

I've finally taken my running to the next level and it's with a great company who supports organic nutrition for your fitness needs!

Ignite Naturals is committed to "...revolutionizing sports nutrition using real food ingredients and science to obliterate jitter-inducing energy boosts, post workout crashes and long-term cellular damage." Sounds great to me! While I'm not the "cleanest eater" a step in the right direction is just what this runner needs.

A few weeks back I was able to test run their IN Refresh mix and I'm excited to try out more of their performance and recovery drinks going forward! (Check out the review here: IN Refresh Review)

All Natural Electrolyte Mix - Ignite Naturals

Hi all,

About a week ago, I was contacted to see if I wanted to receive a free sample of an Ignite Naturals drink mix called INRefresh. While they didn't specifically ask for a review, I thought I was the least I could do!

First some details about the product:

"Your daily healthy drink filled with the riches of tropical and desert plants. Each serving of IN Refresh provides your body with natural fast-absorbing hydration properties from plants while retaining their full nutritional benefits."

This product is 100% plant based, vegan, Non GMO and gluten free! Sounds good to me!

I got three flavors to try, blueberry, dragonfruit lemon lime, and tangerine passion fruit. They sound delicious, right?

Before heading out for my run I mixed up a glass to get a feel for what it was like. Some dragonfruit lemon lime down the hatch!

It felt like any other electrolyte drink on the market, but it was nice to know that it was all natural and not chemical based. It wasn't gritty and it did have that saline feel to it on my tongue from the electrolytes, so you know they are in there.

What I loved most is that it came in these nice little pouches so it fit nicely in the hand pocket on my amphipod! I usually just take water with me on long runs but it was nice to mix it up a bit (get it mix, and it's a drink mix... your welcome... haha)

I started off with just water and I drank enough out of my water bottle to leave 8-12 oz which I then added the mix to my water, this time tangerine passion fruit. It was nice to take with me and the taste was delicious, the dragonfruit flavor tasted a little funny to me but the tangerine was DELICIOUS!

It didn't upset my stomach and kept me strong through the last 5 miles of my 9 miler. Since I carry my water bottle in my hand, it did foam at the top because of the agitation from being constantly shaken but it didn't bug me. Next to taste test the blueberry!

Thanks again to Ignite Naturals for the free sample and the water bottle!

Update: The blueberry is delicious too!
