In recent weeks, I've heard a lot of chatter in my running communities and on Twitter about something called EnergyBits. https://www.energybits.com/index.php/energybits.html I'll be honest, I didn't pay much attention. Another supplement, those things are a dime a dozen. I've tried things here and there, stuff like Shakeology(which has to be the nastiest stuff on the planet, I could barely get through 2 days of that sludge), and I found it overpriced and pointless. I used fuel on long runs, as I couldn't eat too much before those runs. I was left with awful stomach issues and an uncomfortable feeling. There was no "magic pill" that could help me out. But EnergyBits had caught my interest. I entered a few giveaways for samples, but didn't win, and left it be. That was until the company actually reached out to me on Twitter. I followed them, they followed me, and they had been keeping up with my posts, which are pretty much just about running and fitness. This company was actually interested in how I was doing. We chatted about my ITBS and how my current training was going. Wow, since when does a company reach out to their followers to check in on them? Impressive. They offered me a sample, to try out and review on this blog. Well of course, I'll take a sample! Here's the thing about me. I love free stuff. At the grocery store, I'm all over free samples. I belong to freebie sites to try things out. I love trying new things. Keep in mind I still wasn't sold on EnergyBits. Sure, it would be cool to try, but they looked expensive, and while my ability to drop large amounts of money on Disney races might suggest otherwise, I'm cheap. I use coupons, I like to save money, and I will only spend money on things that I find 100% worth it and amazing. Just 2 days after talking to them on twitter, I had my sample of EnergyBits in my mailbox. Wow, talk about fast. It was a Friday, and boy did I need a pick me up. By the end of the school year for my kids, I was running on empty. Late nights of working, early mornings and getting the kids ready for school, working during the day, keeping up my house, getting my running and exercise in, Fridays are usually rough for me. Fridays at the end of the school year were even worse. I was so exhausted I could barely see straight. My beloved coffee was working overtime and still not producing. I was excited to try the Bits out. I opened my package to spill out the contents.
