Not a food post but an exciting giveaway with Garmin Fitness. If you follow me on Instagram I announced a fun giveaway for this beauty last evening. Vivoactive GPS Heart Rate Smart watch. You can read all about it here. Retail is $249.99. I realize some people aren’t on Insta so I wanted to share this giveaway here as well. Please comment on this post or any recipe posted from now till November 6th. 8p EST a winner will be announced, tagged and emailed. A 24 hour reply is mandatory or we randomly select another winner. U.S. residents only.
I also wanted to share some fall running favorites with you all before fall is over & I miss my opportunity. I run at 4:30a or so & require lots of reflective & WARM gear. These are my top favorites.
Okay so to get you out the door these are my favorites & what you will see me wearing from now till spring.
I suffer badly from Raynaud’s so I’ve found that these are integral and sold by the case at Costco. I just insert these into mittens when the temperature is in the 30’s or below.
And finally, my fuel changes that I’ve been making. Since seeing a sports dietician, she recommended I use this starch-based fuel, U Can, in lieu of gels/GUs. I have a super sensitive stomach and training for 3-5 hours of running, I can’t handle another sugar loaded gel. I use one scoop of this mixed with my Vega Energizer in my water bottle. My stomach and energy have been great!
What are your fall running favorites? I’m always excited to hear what you love and what you use to keep yourself visible and warm. Please always take the time to replace batteries in your flashing lights so that you aren’t out there not visible to drivers. Trust me, this happened to me today in a rainstorm.
I wish you happy fall running & training. Also good luck on the watch giveaway!
My update on running/training for the week looks like this…
