No more political commercials = a Giveaway! (closed)

This giveaway is closed
 
Yes, I am that happy. I want my cheesy Mayhem commercials back! I want there to be no more political jumble while I try to do planks during T.V. commercial breaks!
And that’s all the politics this girl will be speaking of today, period. done. 
That’s me after this morning’s run. If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a little ditty about my run this morning. I heard it was going to rain today (I really need to check the weather myself instead of finding out through water cooler chit chat at work) but knew I had 5.5 on my training plan per coach’s semi taper before the taper. About .50 miles in, it started pouring. I thought, “Great, my first solo rainy run” at first..and then after a while it became kind of enjoyable…very cool and peaceful in a way. On my 3 mile turnaround, I heard a car roll up behind me slowly and it was Gar; he knows my route and was checking to see if I needed a lift back home. I said, “I don’t know what it’ll be like on race day, no excuses right?!” He winked at me and said , “Right, I love you, kick butt!” and off I went…I finished at a nice pace & with some surges. Today is a good day so far 😉
In more exciting news, I finally made it though my Kona Kase! Oh wait, what is a Kona Kase? My bad. Let me break it down for you a little bit with a lovely visual:
Said visual. It’s that easy!
I was contacted by the creators of Kona Kase to receive one of their monthly sample boxes and do a review. * Product received was free, however, this review and opinions on the products are my own views.
Some of the products I received in this Kona Kase were recognizable. What I loved:  2nd Surge energy gel, Sharkies organic energy chews, Larabar (of course), and G Pre-game fuel.
Hubs helped me with the Builder’s Protein Bar (he loved Mint Chocolate), Energy packs, and Power Bar.  (This man always makes out with some of my loot, I tell ya 😉 I really love the concept of sample cases you can receive monthly! It’s a great way to try out different products so you can get an idea of what might work or not for you while training and working out! I have a few go-to energy gels and products that I use, but the idea of trying out what’s new is always fun!
Want to win your very own Kona Kase?
My pal Taylor has offered to let me giveaway one case to a lucky reader for them to sample too!

    I cannot wait for this election to be over–enough with the political ads! Strangely, I kind of like running in the rain; it seems more therapeutic to me.

    Nice run this morning! 🙂
    I read about Sharkies on Life of Blyss’s blog, but have never tried them. I like the gummies on a run instead of gels. More tummy friendly!

    For some reason if it starts raining while I’m running I love it, but if I have to start running while it’s raining blech! lol! Way to stick it out. Coach will be very proud of you. It’s the tough runs that make you stronger!

    Gar is adorable! And running in the rain is the best – between the two, it sounds like the perfect run.
    Naturally I can’t enter the Kona giveaway – but they don’t like me anyway :-P. I got SO dirty on them when they spammed me without checking where I was from.
