Ice Bath, Party of One


Yaaaaaa....sooooo.....guess how my Friday morning started off? With a 10 mile run. Yup, TEN miles. I ran with my good friend Jaimie, and girls? This Jaimie girl does not mess around. The farthers I've ever ran in my life has been 8 miles on the treadmill with a few breaks to walk, towel down, get some H20. Oh no, not Jaimie.

This is also my very first run where I ate something in between my start and finish. So we had heard a lot about these babies:
My review is that they were really good surprisingly cause I've always heard running food is nast. * I am not being paid for saying this nor was I given free product, this is all my personal opinion on wanting to try out the product*

We took half of the pack at mile 4 and then the rest at mile 8. Ive decided I will most def be using these blocks for my half marathon that is 9 days away, y'all! 9 days, AHHH!!! I hope to God nothing like this happens to me


But for now I'll be looking like this...

what's on your playlist?
I've got my first half coming up in a few months, are you having extra carbs or fluids in the lead up? Are you planning to eat before the run?

Thanks for the advice,

Novice runner
