I used to do a lot of product reviews, recommendations, and giveaways on this blog, but for the last almost year or so I have not. My blog is where I write about my feelings, emotions, dreams, successes, failures, experiences, and thoughts, I did not want it to turn in to an ongoing infomercial.
That said, I do enjoy getting product recommendations from other runners and some of my favorite products I discovered thanks to posts on other blogs. So I have (and will continue to) post about my most favorite products - products that I use and companies I believe in (like my beloved Brooks Pure Flows!) I am working on a blog post with all of my favorite running "stuff" to share with you, but this was too good not to share now.
Have you heard of Fluid Sports Nutrition?
Since I am running high volume and high intensity with my training, I have been drinking Fluid Recovery Drink after every run. I always try to get something in me within 30 minutes of finishing a workout and the chocolate Fluid tastes great and gets my body what it needs quickly and easily.

I was SO SO excited when I heard back almost right away that they were accepting me at the "gold level" to sponsor! I am happy and proud to be sponsored by Fluid, but I would be using these products even if they had not sponsored me.

I have tried A LOT of brands and products for fueling on the run and for recovery (including "normal food" options). My stomach is SO sensitive and easily upset and many products I have tried have resulted in extra GI distress. I have had some success with Hammer products but I have still struggled and have continued to try other products in hopes of finding something that worked better for me. I found it with Fluid!
