This year I was lucky enough to participate in the 2014 #FitFabFuelSwap 2014 hosted by Running with SD Mom and Naturally Fit Sisters. As someone fairly new to the blogging/social media/running community, I was really excited to participate in the program. I just knew that I would get paired up with an awesome person…and I did!
My partner was the lovely Lora from Crazy Running Girl. Lora is a busy working professional, living in Texas and she runs marathons in her spare time! Yes, my amazing swap partner just completed her 16th marathon and she’ll be running Boston in 2015!! She is also a fellow #nuun, #procompression and #sweatpink ambassador!
After exchanging a few emails to get to know each other better, we were ready to participate in the swap! I forgot to take a photo of the items I sent to Lora but they included a Texas themed ornament and fuel products from Vega, Nuun, Honey Stinger and a few quest bars.
Yesterday I received my package from Lora and it was AMAZING! Knowing that I absolutely LOVE penguins, she got me a very cute penguin ornament and lip gloss in the shape of a penguin. Unfortunately the U.S. postal service didn’t exactly “handle the package” with care, so the penguin ornament did not make it all in one piece 🙁 I taped him together as a temporary fix, but will be buying krazy glue today to try to nurse him back to health 🙂
Inside of the awesome black IPSY bag (which I’ll be using to keep fuel products inside of my gym bag) were PRO BAR energy chews and a snack bar, Honey Stinger energy gels and a small bag of fruit and nut trail mix (perfect for snacking). I’ve heard such great things about PRO BAR (love the fact that their products are organic) so I’m really looking forward to trying out those products. I also love Honey Stinger gels but haven’t tried the gold flavor so I’m looking forward to that as well!
The #FitFabFuelSwap was a great way to get to know someone new and I’m sure that Lora and I will continue to keep in touch. This was a great program to be a part of, especially during the holiday season! Thank you again to Smitha (Running with SD Mom) and Brittany (Naturally Fit Sisters) for hosting the swap. I’m looking forward to participating in it again next year!
Happy Holidays to all!
