A Giveaway! My fave Advocare running products

Hello friends!
It's high time I do a giveaway on this little blog of mine.    Nothing seems more appropriate than a few of my favorite  Advocare running products.    Also known as the Runner's Bundle on my website.



These are my tried and true favorite  Advo running products.   And trust me, I've tried them all.  This little combination works wonders for me.

 First up we have Spark.  Duh.   Not only do I drink Spark first thing in the the a.m. but I drink it about 20-30 minutes before EVERY.SINGLE. WORKOUT.     The amino acids, B vitamins, and 120 mg of caffeine gives me just that...  Some "spark" to get through my run or whatever workout it may be.




Mandarin orange is amazeballs.





And next we have 02 Gold Advanced.  





I use this product before all of my runs that are longer than 4 miles.    This product is known for it's ability to help your body facilitate and use oxygen.   The nickname of this jim dandy is "3rd lung" and that can be pretty darn accurate at times.   So basically, since I've been taking this product, I run longer, harder, and much more comfortably.  I know it sounds too good to be true and I was very skeptical myself.   However, I have been using this product for almost two years and I truly can not be without my 02 Gold.   



And lastly we have Rehydrate Gel.  



This is not your typical gel.  The majority of the other gels are THICK and 100-120  calories.   This is a very thin, watery consistency and only 80 calories.   May not seem like a huge deal but if I'm busting my hump running, I don't want to waste 120 calories on gel.     I just don't.   But that's really not my favorite part.   This gel contains sequential carbs,  which means your body is going to utilize them in 3 different ways, at 3 different times.  You are going to get an immediate boost,  you are also going to get your typical hydration via electrolytes and carbs,  but you are going to get a recovery component as well.     This will carry you.   I took one of these at mile 9 of my 14 miler on Saturday and when I look at my splits, it's obvious when I took Rehydrate.    I've tried every gel on the planet and this is hands down my favorite.


Oh and I've thrown in one of my favorite shaker's for good measure.   I use this for my Spark as well as my morning shake.   Love these shakers.




So there you have it, folks.     A retail value of $89.35.   All you have to do is leave a comment to enter.   For additional entries, share on your FB page, etc.   Contest ends on Saturday!   It's all clear below.     Giddy up and good luck!

  4. I run 130 miles a month on average. The days I don't run I'm usually in the gym doing weights or plyometrics. By May, Meg and I will be caring for twin baby boys in addition to our 2.5 yr old son. I'm up for trying anything that can help keep me going...

  5. I just wrote down all of these to try! These products look amazing, thank you so much for sharing. Ive tried so many gels (yuck they make me gag) and the only thing Ive liked have been the Cliff Blocks but those are 200 calories for the pack. These replenish gels sound amazing. I thought I would lose weight when I was training last year but no dice. I think these might help since I was taking in so many extra calories with those dang blocks. YAY!
