GU for YOU


Since I probably won't be posting while I'm in Hawaii, I figured I'd leave you with a giveaway. I have 15 packs of Vanilla Bean GU Energy Gel for one lucky runner (or biker or person who just likes using GU for the heck of it). And yes, I am too lazy to take a picture of the GU in question so you get a stock photo. Don't let that fool you though. There are indeed 15 packs of GU waiting for you.

The GU is from my own arsenal of energy gels. I bought a 24-pack but realized on my last "long" run that I prefer fruit flavored energy gels. So my changing taste is your good fortune.

I'm not going to ask you to visit the GU website because they didn't give me the GU and they aren't giving me any incentive to share it with you. If you want to learn more about GU, Google it.
Here's what you can to do to enter to win:
  • Tell me why you want it. (Leave it in a comment following this post.)
  • Become a follower or let me know you already were. (Leave another comment.)
  • Post a link to this giveaway on your blog and/or your Facebook page. I don't Twitter anymore so don't bother tweeting it. (Leave a comment for each link you post.)

I'll pick a winner on Monday, March 15th. Have a great weekend and week of running!

  1. Have a GREAT trip! How can you not, in Hawaii?! :)

    1. I want the GU because, frankly, I need to figure out something that will work well for me on long runs and at the marathon. The time to figure it out is now!

  3. I need it because I'm in the thick of marathon training and GU doesn't send me anything either.

  4. Vanilla bean is my flavor and I use GU on every run over 10 miles (pretty much every weekend) so I would love this prize!

  5. I'm already a follower; and I absolutely, positively LOVE that GU. It's my favorite flavor. I'm glad you're not giving undo credit to GU, since you paid for your GU! I'll post a link to this on my blog, if I can figure out how! It's a 50-50 chance I will.

  8. I'd like it because I'm currently out of Gu and too lazy to go by the store to pick more up :) How's that for honest?

    Seriously, I love GU and I haven't tried this flavor, but if I don't like it, I have plenty of local running friends who I could pass it on to.

  21. Vanilla is the only flavor of any gel I can handle and why wouldn't anyone want FREE Gu!!!

  22. I want the Gu because Vanilla is my favourite flavour of Hammer Gel, and I haven't actually tried the Gu brand yet.

    Have fun in Hawaii. I'm super jealous.

  28. Gu is the only fuel type of thing I have used so far in my trainings. I love Gu and always get such an energy burst when I take it.
    I am training for my first 1/2 in April, and then will begin training for the "BIG" one...a full marathon in October. I can use as much Gu as I can get to get me through these trainings!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. I want to win because I've actually never tried Gu! And I love Vanilla flavor anything. :)

  34. I need it because I'm a stay at home mom with 4 kids and the thought of taking all them to the store to buy more Gu makes me wanna cry. I'd rather run fartleks all day. (I put that in there because 'fartlek' still makes me laugh a little). :)

  35. I would like that GU because I have yet to try it out yet AND I have been buying new running gear and shoees and a little GU freebie would be easy on my pocketbook. :)

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
