Clifbar Review & Giveaway

Before we left for our Disney Racecation I received a nice sized box from Clifbar of Clifshots & more! I reached out to the company to be able to do a review on their product and they were generous enough to send me a wonderful collection of their Shot Bloks, Clif Shots and Hydration Shots. I was more than impressed with the amount that they sent me and I waited until the race to go ahead and use them. I figured that I would be able to really put them to the test for that weekend.

So fast forward a few weeks and it was race weekend. I packed up everything that I had in that box into my bag and it was time to set off to head to Orlando, Florida! I was ready to go ahead and get a headstart on trying out these amazing products. I had already tried the strawberry clif blok before and loved it. But after trying the margarita one it soon became my favorite one and I had to grab several more at the expo to get me through the race too!!! That one became my lifesaver for the race because it helped me not get any cramps which for me was amazing! I normally get severe cramps in my legs and sometimes in my feet and this go round I did not! Amazing!!!

I also tried several of the shots which I have tried before the GU Gel's and I honestly hate the way that those tasted so I was a little hesitent in trying these out. I tried the Razz out at the Expo and was plesantly surprised that I liked the taste and the texture so when picking out what I was going to take with me on the run Sunday I chose the Razz and a few others like the Mocha and Cherry Chocolate. Very good! I didn't have any of the hydration shots while running but I did have them as recovery while I was walking the parks on Sunday and it was nice to be able to get those going. Gave me energy that I just didn't have. I highly recommend using these when training, running, or just on the go!

Clifbar was so generous to send me several and some that I would never use so I want to share with two readers! I will send two readers each a ClifShot Gel and a Hydration Shot! See the Rafflecopter Below:

Leaving Tomorrow!

I can't believe it's finally here! The Princess half Weekend has finally arrived and it's hard to believe it! Wow! It seems like just yesterday that I decided to sign up for the race and yet on Sunday I will be running the race!!!

We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside in a Royal Room Garden View and we have gotten 3-day Park Hopper tickets. I can't believe that it's finally here! I'm still in awe and still in disbelief.

I have charged my watch all up, I am finishing up with my homework and I am packing as well! I'm hoping to be finished with the majority part of my homework tonight and then all I will have to do is my exam on Monday when we get back in town. This should be super fun! We have Advance Dining Reservations already made and we will be enjoying our time at The Plaza Restaurant tomorrow night for dinner, Boma for Breakfast on Saturday and Cape May Cafe for dinner on Sunday. We will get some quick serve meals as well while there.

When the race is complete and I'm back I will do a write up on the Expo which I'm excited about going to. I'm hoping to get a few things from there and then I will be doing a write up on the half.

Who else is excited about doing and running the race?
