Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator

Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator

  As part of the FitApproach and VegaSport collaboration, I was sent a box of Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator to try. As a User Experience Architect and Brand Strategist in my real life, I looked at their Vega Sport’s campaign for #FuelYourBetter and was really impressed. This is what the Vega Sport website has to say about their recovery accelerator  – “The first all-natural, plant-based recovery drink mix specifically developed to address all six key elements of post-workout recovery: muscle glycogen…

Enso Roller from EvoFit – Review & Giveaway

Enso Roller from EvoFit – Review & Giveaway

My journey into running started rather abruptly – a spur of the moment decision took me from being a couch potato to a half marathon runner in a matter of months.  In the early days, all I knew was I had to run and I had to “stretch” after the run. Inspite of this “stretching”, I had “issues” every time I crossed mile 9-10. On recommendation from my local running store, I went to see a sports chiropractor who introduced…

Mother’s Day Picks for the Mother Runner

Mother’s Day Picks for the Mother Runner

As a runner (and sometimes wannabe triathlete), I always hope for gifts that are running related. After all, our lives as a mother and runner is so intertwined. Why not get something that I’m going to use, and that will put a smile on my face every time I use it? And although my husband refuses to buy me anything more running related, my kids know that I appreciate my running gear more than jewelry and that I value a…

4year Runniversary Giveway

4year Runniversary Giveway

On Christmas Ev, 4 years ago, I took my first running steps out of fear that I would not be able to complete my first race – a half marathon 12 weeks away. At the same time, I started this blog to document my thoughts. Never did I think that those first steps would stay with me and carry me to 4 years. Running and me have had our ups and downs, but after the first year, it has been…

Koss Fit Series Review

Koss Fit Series Review

This post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Koss. All opinions, as always, are my own. I was recently sent the Koss Fit Series headphones (the FitBuds and the FitClips) to review as part of a FitFluential campaign. If you aren’t familiar with the Fit Series, Koss’ designers teamed up with Gold Medalist Dara Torres to create the world’s first headphones designed specifically for women, by women. Given my history with active headphones, I was a bit skeptical. Both…

All Out Low Impact HIIT by Cathe

All Out Low Impact HIIT by Cathe

As a (faux) runner, I have been looking avidly at different types of cross-training and strength training. Of late, given the constraints of time in a full-time working mom’s life, I have started looking into at home DVDs and have been doing the couple I have. I was looking to change things up when I received this DVD from Cathe. The ‘All Out Low Impact HIIT’ is part of the X-Train series. When I first got the DVD, I was…
