Vega Sports Gel

I was given the opportunity to review Vega Sports Gel. This review is going to be short, sweet, and right to the point.

This gel was HORRIBLE. I mean, I’m super duper happy that I didn’t decide to try it while I was running because I wouldn’t have had a garbage anywhere to dispose of it. I wanted until I got in my car, post 10 mile trail run, to try it.

I had high hopes.. I like gels and with raspberry as the flavor I didn’t think they could go wrong. BOY was I WRONG!

My reaction went something like this, “Oh yuck, blah, that’s horrible, blah”, and then I proceeded to throw the packet in the garbage in my car. Disgusting.

Thanks Vega, but I’m going to stick with my Hammer Gel.

Seeing as I didn’t pick my packet up on Friday, I’ll be venturing early in the morning to pick up my packet before the start of the race.

Since I start my race at 8:45am, I plan on getting to Ford Field Park around 7:30am. Giving me a solid 1 hr and 15 minutes to pick up my packet and use the bathroom. Luckily since the Half starts 45 minutes after the 10k and 5k, I’m hoping that the bathroom line won’t be TOO long!

For once I’m actually running this race with a few friends! Planning on carpooling so that I’m not there alone! Check out the route!

Best part about today?! Easter at my boyfriend’s grandma’s house! Aka: Lots of good yummy food after a long run! Awesome!! =D



Birthday Weekend Snapshots {04/07/14}

So my ‘weekend’ started sometime on Friday. The boy and I got lunch for my birthday so we’ll start there (even though I had to go back to work for a few hours before I was actually done).

Had to go grocery shopping.. Was a BIT over budget, but I had to get a few things that I only stock up on once every few weeks.
