I love all of the following things and use them on the regular. I was not asked by any of these companies to post this, I gain nothing from making this page other than the chance that someone tries something here and loves it as much as I do! In no particular order, here are my favorite things to eat, drink, run in, and otherwise enjoy this running life!

Oh my goodness do I love Larabars! Limited, real ingredients and delicious flavors. My favorite flavors are Cashew Cookie, Blueberry Muffin, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and the sensational Pecan Pie.

Great flavors that aren't in your face, with or without that jolt of caffeine. Hands down, Grape is my favorite. It was the first one I tried and I never looked back. Cherry-Limeade also rocks my socks and I keep a tube of All Day at my office to get my hydration on.

I am 100% a protein snob. I admit it and I'm not ashamed. I have tried so many brands, blends, and sources. I prefer plant-based options for a number of reasons and Vega's Choc-A-Lot hits it out of the park. I blend a scoop with cold almond milk and whatever frozen fruit is in the freezer (mango and pineapple are amazing options!). Delicious and doesn't put a huge dent in my wallet.

I credit my local specialty running store with introducing me to Oiselle's running apparel. I am slowly but surely replacing my running wardrobe with Oiselle items. I've got a wish list of things I hope they make soon, but in the meantime two of my most-worn pieces are the Lesko bra and the Flyte short sleeve. The quality is top notch and the brand concept is wonderful. Don't get me started on the squealing that may have happened when I heard that they brought my girl-crush Kara on board.

This list is the tip of the iceberg. We haven't gotten to shoes, technology, health tools and such. Am I missing something? Do you have a favorite that I need to try? Let me hear it!
