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!

Day one of @feverdancechamps #fevermarkham2018 so proud of this girl! #prouddad #prouddaddy #dadblogger #dancedad #dancecompetition #dance #booyabdc
Happy I got the chance to watch the little man wrestle today!
We never realized how hard this tragedy would hit us. 😭. Can’t imagine what these families are going though. #PutYourSticksOut #HumboldtStrong
Papa was always so proud of Noah in everything he did especially his hockey. He always wanted to be there for his games and practices; you could always see the pride in his eyes and they way he spoke about how he was progressing. We lost papa last summer to cancer and it made Noah’s first season as a select player difficult because he wasn’t with us to experience this incredible season and Noah’s exponential increase in skills. Noah is raising money for the pedal for hope campaign in honour of his papa by shaving his head at his school. Please consider a donation ,no amount is too small, and help him reach his goal. You can also help by sharing this post with your friends. Thanks for reading 🙂 The link is in my profile
This weekend was busy AF but for these two it was all worth it! ❤️

Beautiful weather yesterday but loved getting out with my #SoleMate. Was a little cool so I wore my @enertorglobal base layer under my technical shirt and it worked perfectly! Wasn’t too hot and wasn’t too cold! Love this company! I also use their insoles for running and while I’m at work! If you want a discount you can find it in my profile:). Happy running everyone! # #Repost @karenvanmil with @get_repost ・・・ Had a little RUNdezvous with my sole mate @paramedic_mike during my lunch break! ❤️Made the day brighter and I’m not tired anymore! #runch #teamawesome2018 #runottawa2018 #ottawamarathon #bettertogether #betterthancoffee
Just tried out the new @underarmourca #UAHOVR #uahovrphantom shoes! These shoes have the same great heal cusion/bounce as the #uahovrsonic that I love. I also like that there is no tongue to pull up on these and you just slide you foot right in! The colour is super hot and bright however they will get dirty fast so be aware if you don’t like your shoe getting dirty. But, if you don’t like getting your shoes dirty then why are you running outside? Lol. I did find my heals slid a bit in the shoe but if you have great socks like I do then you shouldn’t have a problem. One other thing I noticed about this shoe is that the toe box is not very roomy so if you have insoles that you like to run in or your Fort requires extra room then you will find your toes hitting the top of the shoes. I ended up with a sore big toe on my nail after this run. I’ll have to use less of an insole or none at all when I use this shoe again. The shoe had great give and elasticity around the whole shoe so it really fit nicely around the top of my foot. I found there was good ankle support and didn’t notice any rolling when I transitioned to the uneven grass from the sidewalks and roadways. Overall another great shoe from #UnderArmor and I would highly recommend it when picking new shoes. As always when I talk to people about shoes please try on as many as possible to find the pair that best suits your foot shape, your gait and support that you require. Thank you @underarmourca and @paradigm_pr for giving me these shoes to try out and share with you guys! #CanadaWILL @enertorglobal @teamtiux
That looks much better! Thanks @lamarcahairsalon ! #haricut #barber #cleanedup
