Blog Hop!

My friend Danica nominated me to participate in a “blog hop.” I would answer a few questions and nominate two other bloggers to do the same.

Perfect Christmas Runner’s Gift: Fitletic Belt [Review]

I have written several reviews on products from Fitletic (the Double Neoprene Belt and the Hydration Belt).  They used to be called iFitness and have changed their name to Fitletic recently.  I have been an unofficial ambassador for this company for years, purchasing several belts for friends as gifts and gushing about how much IContinue Reading

The High Nuun team was so blessed to have a ton of great sponsors for Ragnar Colorado. Each of us have different physical and nutritional needs.  Not everyone was able to eat everything nor use every recovery product.  However, we all were able to use the Handana.  Not only were we all able to try them out,Continue Reading
