A "Fueling" Giveaway!

The comments are not working on this post for some reason - I re-posted on Friday, Dec 9. Please go to that post to enter.  So sorry for the tech glitch.

Welcome to Part 2 of the My Favorite Things Giveaway!  (Congrats to Lani for winning the DrinkClick prize pack yesterday!) This week, as a way of saying "Thank You" to all of you for your support as I trained to run my first marathon this year, I'm giving you a chance to win some of my favorite race-day & training fuel!
Here's what you will win if your name is chosen by my awesome random name picker:

  • A tube of Fruit Punch Nuun electrolyte drink tabs.  One tab will fill 2 - 8 oz bottles and tastes so much better than plain water. Each tube makes 12 - 16 oz drinks!
  • 2 packets of Jelly Belly Extreme Sport Beans - Watermelon and Cherry flavors (with caffeine cuz that extra kick ROCKS) I eat a couple of these every 2 miles or so.  Like a yummy treat.
  • 2 packets of Gu (Tri-Berry and Espresso Love) My fueling strategy is a Gu every 5 miles, taken over the course of 1/2-3/4 of a mile, also while sipping fluids.  These two flavors are my absolute favorites.  
All 3 of these products helped get me to the Grand Rapids Marathon finish line on October 16th and I hope you love them as much as I do.

Here's how you enter:
  1. Mandatory Entry: leave me a comment telling me how you fuel for exercise.
  2. Follow my blog (either through RSS or email) and leave me a comment letting me know.
  3. Follow me on twitter and leave a comment.
  4. Tweet about this giveaway and (you guessed it) leave a comment.
  5. "like" Live Laugh Run Breathe on Facebook and leave a comment.
This contest will run until 8pm on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011 when I'll pick a winner using ClassTools Fruit Machine (if you are a teacher, this is an AWESOME tool for random name generation in the classroom). I'll announce the winner on Wed, Dec. 14th.

Good luck!


  1. I fuel during long runs and races with Generation UCAN at 2 miles, 6 miles, etc. and GU gels and water at 4 miles, 8 miles, etc.

  2. I fuel before and after with coconut water, but I think I need to start fueling during!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Happy New Year 2020
