National Running Day is June 5th

As any one who hits the pavement on a regular basis will attest, every day is National Running Day! But it is nice to have a day of the world for celebrate too! Tomorrow is that day! 

The cool people at Yog are hosting a series of community runs this Wednesday to celebrate. To join one of the runs they have scheduled, open up Yog and look for runs titled: Nat'l Run Day. Be sure to share your pictures using #yogrunday on Instagram!

The benefits of running for me run the gambit. Today, it is officially LESS than six months before I hit a new decade. So, running for me is good the mind, the soul and the ass. I am only half kidding. I really love to run, and have accepted that I may not be the fastest or the longest but I am better than one who sits upon the couch. I can put on my headphones and jam out and solve the world (or at least my white girl) problems all in one thirty minute jaunt.

I am also starting to get in really great shape for my efforts. Yes, I am sore sometimes...but I noticed that my dieting efforts have stayed put and I have to think it is from the extra cardio. And when you are spending all that time huffing and puffing, you tend to think twice before you shove a donut in your mouth!(Someone PLEASE tell me what that Dunkin Donuts sandwich tastes like!)

Speaking of what you put in your mouth...the one lesson I have learned is that it is so very important to eat a little something before you venture out. If you are like me and like to run the minute the sun comes up, it can be a challenge. Its hard to go from dreaming to running in a couple of minutes not to mention to shove water and food down you...but your run will suffer if you don't. I personally rely on things that are quick and easy and take very little thought (it IS very early!)

thinkThin® fits that bill for me. The thinkThin® high protein bars has 0g sugar and the  thinkThin® Crunch (my favorite) is non-GMO and has 10g protein and 70% less sugar than leading fruit and nut bars. Also, the thinkThin® Bites are delicious and convenient! I have been devouring them and want to share the wealth! Giveaway below for a Wellness Box from thinkThin® which includes:

  • one 10 bar box of thinkThin® high protein bars (with 0g sugar)
  • one 10 bar box of thinkThin® Crunch (with 10g protein and 70% less sugar than leading fruit and nut bars)
  • three boxes of thinkThin® Bites.

Good Luck and Happy National Running Day!

  2. Yum! I love ThinkThin bars but I've never tried the crunch or bites!

  3. The Blueberry Crunch with Mixed Nuts would be my top pick!

  4. Mint Clare D. Here. I've tasted only 1 thinkThin Bar in my life and wow were they good! Don't know what they put in theur products that makes them so good and yet sugar free.

  5. Blueberry Crunch sounds fabulous as I love blueberries! Thank you!

  6. Great high protein bar and hardly any sugar too! The blueberry looks tasty - thanks!

  7. I didn't know ThinkThin made little bites too! These look great for just a small "bite" of protein to take away a sweet tooth craving!

  8. Yum! Haven't tried the thin bars, just the regular ThinkThin and the Crunch!

  9. Yum! Haven't tried the thin, just the regular ThinkThin and Crunch, delicious!
