Back in the USA, Back on Track

Well, my contract aboard the Seabourn Sojourn is finished, and I’m officially land-based (making training much easier).

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 2: Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine

For the second episode of my energy supplement reviews series, I took a 15 mile run with Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine! I didn’t get very much sleep last night and I left my run a little too late in the morning after my meagre bagel and cream cheese breakfast, so […]
