Training for My First Half Marathon 13.1 Miles

Short update since December of 2013 to December 2014 I have lost about 65 pounds..  so I am ready to start training for a half  I started training for my first half marathon using the Nike Plus Running App – Coach Week 1 Day 1 Called for 3 easy miles.. It wasn’t too bad honestly it could have been better.. I just got back from a work convention in Las Vegas and I slacked on my running I missed 11 DAYS. I couldn’t believe it when I looked at my calendar so with that I am hoping It gets easier. I really enjoy running and I am super excited about the Go Girls Half Marathon..

Danskin running pants : Danskin Leggings ( I prefer tight around ankle) Price around $15.00.

I haven't really tried any of the other running pants our there I like these because they are tight all the way to the ankle.

Sport Bra: Asics Sport Bra with front pocket Price around $30.00.

I like this bra mainly because I use my iphone with my running app to track my running and I can stick it in the front pocket.

Vega Sport, Fuel Your better

I am a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was sent this product to try and review. Opinions posted here are mine and 100% honest.

I was super excited when Sweat Pink partnered up with Vega Sport for this Fuel Your Better Campaign, and even more excited when I was picked to participate in this campaign. We were given and option of what we wanted to try they had several different types of fuel to choose from, I chose the Pre-Workout Energizer.

I received a box of Lemon-Lime flavored packets and honestly, I was a little sad about the Lemon Lime flavor, honestly I am not a big fan of lemon lime.

The Powder is completely plant based. The flavor was ok, like I said before lemon lime is not my choice of flavor. You mix it into 8 ounces of cold water and drink 20 min before your workout. See the photo below it was a little hard to mix completely.

I tried it and I LOVED the way that Vega Sport’s Pre-Energizer Workout made me feel during my run, I felt good the entire run never hit the wall; this drink gave me the perfect boost that lasted my entire run. I recommend it especially if you need a little extra boost! I do plan to purchase the Acai Berry flavor on my own.
