Some of my favorites today!

As a competitive distance runner and endurance athlete, what I put in and on my body is very important to me. Today was just an easy 10K recovery run as I let my body recover before tomorrow’s LONG run. But I got to thinking this AM about some of my favorites…all used today!

Shakeology Chocolate Nutritional Shake

This patent-pending daily nutritional shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods.

At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.

I take this powder shake and put it in a blender with 1 c. of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 5-6 frozen strawberries and blend/enjoy. If in a hurry I will simply put in a bottle with the almond milk, shake and drink. Perfect nutrition, easy, simple, uncomplicated, and tastes great.

Moving Comfort Chill Out Bra


ThermoCool™ fabric is designed to optimize the body’s temperature to keep skin cool, dry, and comfortable no matter what the conditions. A combination of support features stabilize every move.

• Smart fiber provides year-round thermoregulation and comfort
• Stabilized cradle and yoke give superior support and control
• Brushed interior front lining provides warmth and wicking

This is without a doubt my favorite winter sports bra for running on cool mornings. The inside is lined in a wicking soft fleece keeping you warm and wicking moisture away from the body keeping you dry. Moving Comfort is known for their bras and women’s athletic apparel and the quality, function, and designs are both attractive and extremely functional.

Brooks Adapt Glove

The Brooks Adapt Glove are the perfect answer to these 30 degree morning runs. The easily stowed water-resistant “windshield” in this MP3 compatible glove helps you adjust to the weather “on the run”. The glove offers up good reflectivity helping you to be seen on the go. In addition polyurethane finger grips, MP3 thumb pad and flip back thump hole make this glove multi-functional. The glove resists wind and rain and is the perfect thickness not to feel to bulky but to provide the needed warmth. Thanks Brooks for making my morning runs much more enjoyable.
