Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review: HIGH5 EnergyGels Part Deux!

So today I took my second set of HIGH5 gels, OrangePlus with Caffeine and CitrusBurst for a spin. Given my last HIGH5 experience, I chose to dilute them both in water, rather than eat them. So let’s get to it! Flavour: 3/10 Meh again. Honestly once diluted in water it’s impossible to tell any of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 3: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and SummerFruits

For the third instalment of my energy products review series, I tried out my first gels: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and in SummerFruits. Both gels were caffeine free, and I decided to consume them through two different popular methods: eating from the packet and dissolving in my water bottle. So, lets see how they measured […]

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 […]

Technology Review: Zombies, Run! app

So, I’ve heard a lot about the Zombies, Run! app by Six to Start. It sounded like fun and I finally purchased it a couple of days ago to test out on a maintenance run. I was not prepared for how awesome this app is. Zombies, Run! is not just an app that tricks you […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode I: Jelly Belly Sport Beans

So, for my first energy product test I chose the mild-sounding Sports Bean by Jelly Belly in Lemon Lime flavor… Flavor: 10/10 These beans taste like your classic run-of-the-mill Jelly Bellys. There’s no strange aftertaste or funny consistency. I would honestly eat them even if I weren’t exercising! Convenience: 7/10 They aren’t sticky or messy and […]

Lazy Blogging, Late Stats, Paula Deen, Grisly Disney, Civil Rights, Food Overload & Mizuno’s

I have been such a shite blogger over the last several weeks. I’m sorry. Things started out so well. Let’s start over together: Hi, I’m Amanda. This one time I went for a run and a bird shit on me. Okay, so what’s the craic? What’s been happening? I worked Taste of London last week […]

#FF #FitFriday

(A little bit of Girl Power for your Friday Morning) Went for a quick run yesterday, but didn’t record as I went to work a very long shift at Taste of London. I’m off to work again today, but didn’t wake up in time for a run :S All of this inspiration is making me […]

Fun-Run Costume Designs!

So, I have been saying that my WDW Marathon will be a “fun run” in some form of a costume since I’m doing it for children’s charities. My mom sews, so rather than just buying some wings and a tutu like most people, we decided to design and make a Disney character costume for race […]

When You Wish Upon A Star Charity Run, The Blog Is 1 Month Old Today!

I have been training for a month! Well, what have we learned in one month? I listen almost exclusively to musicals on my runs (and, let’s be honest, in life). I really actually enjoy running! It’s my me-time. I can let my mind run free! It’s like I’m Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, except instead of […]
