I am right in the middle of training for my first half marathon. It has been quite a journey and it still continues to give me challenges. There are good runs, bad runs, and days where I wish I didn’t have to run! However I am feeling I always do better when someone gives me a little encouragement. With the weather getting colder and my runs getting longer I thought it would be fun to put together a little encouragement present for anyone who is struggling through their training program. Sometimes all it takes to keep going is a little “You can do it!” cheer from someone else.
While I was checking out at Walmart the other day I noticed these great looking goodnessknows® snack squares at the checkout. I discovered that they have 3 wonderful flavors:
goodnessknows® Cranberry, Almond, Dark Chocolate,
goodnessknows® Apple, Almond & Peanut, Dark Chocolate
goodnessknows® Peach & Cherry, Almond, Dark Chocolate.
I thought these would be the perfect starting point for an encouragement gift. goodnessknows® is also holding a sweepstake with over $2500. Follow the link for a chance to win! #tryalittlegoodnesssweepstakes
The goodnessknows® snack squares are designed with real fruits, whole nuts and dark chocolate. They are made with the thought that doing a little good for ourselves goes along way. I especially like the fact that they contain no artificial colors or sweeteners and no high fructose corn syrup. The goodnessknows® snack squares cranberry, almond and dark chocolate variety is one that I have been enjoying. It has a crunchy, chewy, sweet, tart and slightly salty taste all rolled together which is simply wonderful.
To put together my running essentials encouragement gift I found some running gloves that work great in cold weather. You will want to find some that wick away the sweat and keep your hands dry. I placed them in a clear cellophane bag as my base. Then I added some hand warmers. This will be great to use after a long run in cold weather. I know as soon as I stop running I get cold really quickly. These will help stave off the chill. Next is a non-slip hairband. I love to keep my hair out of my face while exercising. A cute, functional headband is a must. To top all of it off are some goodnessknows® snack squares. There is nothing I like better after a long run than to fuel my body quickly. The snack squares are awesome because they taste great and they are divided up into 4 easy to eat squares. To finish it off tie the bag together with a piece of twine and add a simple note of encouragement.
goodnessknows® snack squares are a great pick me up after a good run. I have a coupon to share with you also, just follow this link. What is your favorite way to exercise?
