Runners & Digital Champions of @runCRS #TYS10K are fueled by @PowerBarCanada Performance Energy Blends

I am very thankful and honored to have been gifted two boxes of PowerBar Canada Performance Energy Blends as part of being a member of the Canada Running Series Digital Champion program.  Each of the Digital Champions were given one box of the Apple Mango Strawberry as well as one box of the Pear Blackberry for our participation, support and promotion of #TYS10K.  We were provided these as a thank you for our work with no conditions and I was not required to write about this.

I’ve had a few chances now to try these blends before and after some of my training runs.  They have the consistency of apple sauce which for me I LOVE!  I grew up eating a lot of home made apple sauce so this to me really feels like a treat!  But its more than that and that’s what makes these blends really amazing!  These gluten- free fruit-based blends are formulated with PowerBar’s C2MAX, a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend found to deliver 20-50% more energy to muscles than glucose alone and can help improve endurance performance by 8%.  But you would never notice!  The only thing I noticed when I had it either before or after a run was they they had great flavor, great consistency and the perfect amount of fuel for each of my runs.  I never once found that I needed more!

Another great thing I liked about these badboys is the packaging!  They’re inside a very pliable bag that allows you to squeeze it into your mouth quickly while running and a great ability to pack it anywhere since it’ll fit into odd shaped spaces.  I also love the screw on lid.  If you ever need to, you can put the lid back on and shove it back into your pocket or running belt without a huge mess!

For those of you interested in the nutritional values

I would like to thank the Canada Running Series for accepting me as a Digital Champion and supporting my training.  I would also like to thank PowerBar Canada for being a sponsor of this race and providing the perfect fuel for my training runs as well as for all the runners during and after the race!

🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑Well after a little more than 10 months it's time for this little birdie to leave the nest and fly on his own!  It's been a long process with many ups and downs. 🙏❤️huge thanks to my wife who was still recovering from major surgery and was basically a single mom right up to Christmas while I was attending the in-class portion. She encouraged me, supported me and kept everything at home and with the kids running smoothly. Then during my clinical and preceptorship phase we had to deal with the illness and eventual passing of her father. There were many times where I needed to be with her to support her and I couldn't :(. @karenvanmil, you are amazing, supportive, strong and I couldn't have done it without you! ❤️544
🙏 thank you @edwonian for precepting me.  We had some fun times, frustrating times where I felt like I made a mistake and could do this and times of immense learning and growth.  You broke it down, kept on me to improve and gave me strategies constantly self reflect and always find ways to be better and find improved ways to treat my patients. I wouldn't be where I am today with your wisdom patience and experience; thank you!!! 🙏thank you @i_carter78 I had the pleasure of learn long a ton with you as your partner over all these years that helped me to enter this program. Then I was lucky enough to return to your for my consolidation.  I hope I can be half the medic you are. I have learned a ton with you these last few months and you pushed me from "I think" to "I know". We've become great friends over these years and I hope for that to continue even though I may be moving to a different platoon. Thank also for all the  help and work you put in on the sidelines for me this past year! First off thank you everyone for the support, words of encouragement and donations!  I was honestly worried about this race because of my lack of training but it was, surprisingly, much better than I thought! I ran it on intervals of 11:1 and tried to maintain a 9:30 min/mile and I met my goal of under 1hr30mins! Already looking forward to next year!

@oakley My #flatrunner for tomorrow's @raceforkidsto 15k. Thanks again to all those that donated so far!  There's still time to donate as well!  Check out my profile for the link!  You'd be helping a ton of kids get hooked up with the resources they need! 🏃Race kit days are fun!🏃 :) @raceforkidsto may be tomorrow morning but there's still time to make a donation and help some kids!  The link is in my profile! :) This has not been a great year for me to get out and get runs logged. I forced myself to get out tonight after two long days at work with shift overrun overtime. Mentally I think I needed it. I also have the @raceforkidsto 15k coming up this weekend and I wanted to get a handle of where I was at. While I am not happy with my level of training and fitness I know I'll be able to complete this race. This race is important to me and I run it every year because of the great things it does for our youth!  The program your donations support assists youth to navigate the very complicated mental health system. Youth suffering with mental health problems is something I see at work frequently and, unfortunately, more and more every shift. Your donations go a long way to helping these kids. Huge thank you to those of you who have donated already!  If you would like to make a donation in my name the link is in my IG profile. The @raceforkidsto is now officially sold out! There is still tons of time to donate and help some kids though!
