Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out.

CORE Foods Review & Giveaway

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out 3 CORE Foods Defender Meal products.

From CORE Facebook page

Their motto is Healthy & Convenient, High Performance food. And really. It is!

I have tried 2 of the 3 flavors at the time of typing up this post.

The Raw Cashew Cacao was late breakfast on the go in the car on Thursday. I was so busy that day that this was perfect to grab and go with a bottle of water.

I had the Raw Raisin Almond for dinner at work on Friday.

This was my fave flavor. It really did taste like a bowl of oatmeal I would make myself. But healthier. And way more portable!

How can you not like this ingredient list?! 6 ingredients for the Cacao bar. 6 ingredients that I can pronounce!!! Vegan. Organic. Gluten-Free. Raw. Real food that I can take with me on the go. With my higher mileage for the next 2 months, I can see myself buying these and taking them with me to work as a snack or meal for the day when I don't have time to cook.
