Running completes me...and a Cocogo giveaway!!

I have moments where I miss running so much it hurts. Literally. Like I feel it in every inch of my body. It's an ache that feels like something is pressing on my chest and I can't catch my breath.

Those moments always catch me off guard. Like when we were heading to Park City on Saturday to watch the State Lacrosse Championship game. We were driving all innocently on a road that, during the winter, I ran on at least a few times each week. And boom. I was flooded with images from my runs on that road and overwhelmed by how much I wanted to get out and run.

Or driving my girls to school. There are a lot of runners on one of the roads we drive on, and usually I hardly notice them. But then bam. I'll see one of them and just long to be out there. Running.

Luckily I have pool running to pass the time and help me stay sane. I was on the fence about going yesterday because getting up at 5:30 am is not easy for me and the thought of sleeping in until 7 was REALLY tempting. But Scott encouraged me to go. And then I got a text from Janae saying she was going. So I went.

I never regret it. And I don't even mind being tired because it's always worth it.

Today I took some Cocogo with me to drink after our "run" because I knew we were planning on going 90 minutes and were going to push it a little harder with some sprints in the middle.

If you haven't tried Cocogo, you should. I was a little afraid to try it because I have tried other coconut water and have not been a fan. Cocogo is yummy!

I haven't had it during or after a run yet, but I used it during several of my sweat-fest cycling sessions. It is great for rehydrating and not too sweet like a lot of sports drinks. I really love the grape flavor. The lemon-lime and raspberry passion fruit are both good too. And that says a lot because I'm usually not a lemon-lime drink fan!

Cocogo wants to give one lucky IHR reader the chance to try all three flavors. The winner of this giveaway will receive a 12-pack box of each flavor and a Cocogo Polar Bottle!

Here is Cocogo, in a nutshell:

Cocogo is a new premium sports drink made with real fruit and coconut water in stick pack. It is all-natural and isn’t overly sweet. Cocogo provides steady energy, no muscle cramps, is easy on the stomach, and prevents “the bonk.” And when you compare Cocogo to other sports drinks, it offers the best balance of electrolytes, contains an ideal blend of sugars, and has seven essential vitamins.

Here are some more reasons to try Cocogo:

  • Flavor – Mixed to any strength and still tastes good
  • Energy – Quick to get into the bloodstream
  • Electrolytes – High in electrolytes
  • Stomach & Digestion – Quick to digest
  • Ease of use – Small packets allow for customized mixing

To enter:

  • Follow Cocogo on Instagram @drinkcocogo or Twitter @drinkcocogo. Leave a comment here, letting me know you did. (Required)
  • Tweet or post on Instagram about the giveaway. Include @ihaverun and @drinkcocogo in the text of your post. If you don't, I won't be able to track your entries. (Optional - up to 5 possible entries for tweeting or posting!)

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

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

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
