Runner’s Choice Product Review and GIVEAWAY

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 2.11.10 PM

I was approached by  the marketing team to try the Runner’s Choice- Foot Massage in a Bottle product… not much convincing needed with a name like that! I spend a ton of time on my feet even when not running so the product sounded great to me. I am also a believer in and a user of essential oils so yet another tick in the box of things going for this product.

I have been using this product fairly consistently for the last 4 months and I have to say I love it. I generally use it when I get out of the shower in the morning although sometimes I like to put it on before I go to bed. It is oil based so I usually put it on and then wear some socks until it absorbs into my feet; but that doesn’t take very long.

This is a great product for runners! Was is nice about it is even thought it is made of oils, it isn’t oily or greasy. It absorbs quickly into your feet and smells wonderful! But, it is the effects of using it consistently is what I like the best. I have some pretty tough calluses on the bottoms of my feet, especially under my big toes, the balls of my feet, and my heels. They tend to get a little cracked and “angry” at times. I found that the use of the Runner’s Choice oil really made my feet more supple and moisturized without actually making them feel greasy or slippery. My feet feel like I have had a pedicure with actually to having one. But to make a distinction, my feet don’t feel too soft from using the Runner’s Choice product. That is very important to me. My feet need to be tough but not hard if that makes sense.

The cost for the oil is just under $20 for one and cheaper if you by multiple bottles. I will admit, a little goes a long way so a bottle last a long time

Here is the best news, I get to give away two bottles to two different readers! The way to enter is by commenting on this blog post and Tweeting the following:

“I want a free foot massage provided by @TriBeccaTO and http://www.trustedhealthproducts.com/. You can win one too! ”

I will randomly choose two winners May 8th and Trusted Health Products (the makers of Runner’s Choice) will send you the bottle directly. Don’t you want some happy feet?

#IMAZ – 1 sleep to go (OMG it is here!)

Ok. This is it. One. Last. Sleep. First I need to say thank you for all of those that have followed me on this journey, either by choice or not. I am sure some of you may be tired of hearing about my training and obsessions over this race. You are almost done! (almost)

The day went well. I did a practice swim, bike, and run. Nothing major to report. The lake is a little colder than I thought but that is OK. I have chosen not to have any special needs bags on race day.  I think I can take all I need on the bike and run  and will be fine with me with the additional support on course. I am really trying to keep things simple.

I am ready to leave it all out there tomorrow. Swim hard, bike smart, and run my ass off! All the details on how to track me can be found here. You can also follow my Twitter and Instagram, @TriBeccaTO, and Stuart’s @Quadrathon. There should be lots of updates as the day goes on. Below are a  few more pictures from my day and then I am going to get my last sleep!

Funniest thing I saw today.
