I like to think that I have a discerning pallet when it comes to beverages. I can wax poetic about the citrus notes in a west coast IPA, or the earthy undertones in a glass of red wine. When I was sent a case of Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water to test and review, I was at a loss. How do I review water?
It’s … uh … wet.
It has a pretty bottle.
Surprisingly, though, I have a lot of good things to say about Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water. I enjoyed all twelve one liter bottles that I had the pleasure of trying. (more…)
I believe certain events happen in life for a reason, and the timing of which can dictate how you move forward. As I was starting to look at my 2016 running goals, I realized that I wanted to take my performance to the next level. And to do that, I need to focus on diet and get my weight down a bit. I have about 10 to 15 pounds I want to shed, in a healthy manner. Right on cue, I received an email from Aaron Summers of 1st Phorm, a diet and supplement company. He had seen some reviews I had written on my blog and wanted to see if we could work together to promote 1st Phorm, while at the same time help me reach my goals. Aaron is a Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist. Right away, I knew he was someone I could ask questions and not just get a sales pitch as a response. I wanted to find products that work for me and my lifestyle. And he wanted to help me succeed and share my story. The 1st Phorm philosophy really struck a chord with me as well.

About a year ago, I started seeing products by Orange Mud pop up in my social media news feeds. They had quite a social following and some nice looking products. Water bottles, hydration packs, gear bags; all being used for various outdoor adventures. I though to myself, “I want to be doing outdoor adventures like that! I’ll need to stay hydrated!” So, I put the Orange Mud HydraQuiver Double Barrel Vest Pack on my Christmas list. Santa came through for me, and on Christmas morning, I was prepared for any and all outdoor adventures that came my way. (more…)
With BottleBand, you can turn almost any water bottle into an easy to carry handheld hydration solution. It works with regular disposable water bottles or sports bottles. I have used it for both with great results. (more…)
Someone recently asked me, “What do you eat?”, in regard to running and staying fit. It was actually a tough question to answer. To be honest, I still struggle with my diet. Fortunately my running and physical activity keeps the weight off, but I would like to trim a few pounds off to help with my running speed. (more…)
Behold the power of algae! Whoever thought pond scum would be good for you? These little pills pack a punch of vitamins, glucose, and protein. Made of 100% natural spirulina algae, these tabs claim they are not a supplement, they are a food source. Are they the secret little superfood that will provide that extra boost of energy to conquer all challenges?
