Hard to believe I am still recovering from Sunday’s 10K which makes me wonder if i push myself too hard during races. Today’s 3 miler was not easy but it felt great! I started out running with Chris but we parted ways after mile 1 because he only wanted to run 2 miles and while somedays 2 miles is okay I generally like to run at least three.
Tomorrow or Saturday I plan on a longer run, anywhere from 5-7 miles depending on how I feel. Tonight I am absolutely exhausted so once I finish this post I am off to bed, if I feel good tomorrow I will probably tackle my long run after work otherwise Saturday will be my long run day.
As a runner I am always excited to try new refueling options so when I was contacted by Sharkies® to try their product and host a giveaway I immediately said yes!!!! I will say I have not been a fan of gummy type refueling options because the few times I tried using them while running they made not only made me nauseous but I practically choked to death trying to swallow them so I have always defaulted to using GU for all my refueling during races.
I decided to give Sharkies® a try during the L.I. Marathon 10K:
I refueled with Sharkies® Berry Blast at mile 3 and they were awesome!! They tasted great and slid down my throat easily, no choking!! These chews definitely helped energize me during the second half of the race, especially during miles 5 and 6. I love that Sharkies are organic and contain no artificial flavors, dyes or synthetic ingredients. It is nice to refuel with a product where the whole ingredient list contains items that I understand so that I know exactly what I am putting into my body.
Sharkies® also offers a line of kid snacks that are free of high fructose corn syrup, wheat, gluten, nuts and fat.
- Sharkies® Organic Fruit Chews are USDA Certified Organic, are packed with 100% daily value of Vitamin C and contain no artificial dyes or flavors. They are available in Berry Bites and Fruit Splash flavors.
