It’s ZOOMA weekend! Tomorrow’s post-flu half marathon should be an interesting one. I’d love a PR, but I’m not going to beat myself up if I don’t get one. (Remind me of that if I start beating myself up, okay?) It’s been a rough training season, and at this point I’m just thankful that my strong pre-flu training allowed me to bounce back relatively quickly after a 3 week hiatus. I may not be ready to run a marathon next month, but at least I didn’t have to start over from scratch.
Anyway, I’m heading out to Amelia Island in a few hours, but before I go, I wanted to post my first giveaway of the new year! This giveaway is being sponsored by Osteo Bi-Flex, and they’ve got a great prize package valued at around $100 for one of you. Read more about how Osteo Bi-Flex can help improve your joint health, and then scroll down to enter the giveaway.
About Osteo Bi-Flex
Osteo Bi-Flex is a leader in the joint health industry, and they have supplements that cover a wide range of needs and activity levels. Joint health is important to everyone, of course, but I think you’ll agree that it’s of particular importance to runners. (Knees, anyone?) Sore, stiff joints are no fun – they can discourage you from training and racing, and then inactivity can make the problem even worse.
But we don’t necessarily think about our joints unless we feel pain. Joint concerns often develop simply from the process of aging. The fluid around our joints dissipates, which can lead to friction and erosion of cartilage. And things like being overweight, poor posture, or even just wearing ill-fitting shoes can add more stress to our joints. And of course running, cycling, and other sports compound the problem.
Movement and proper nutrition can help keep our joints lubricated, and exercise will help strengthen the muscles around our joints. And supplements like Osteo Bi-Flex can help us care for our joints before they become sore, stiff, or injured.
Osteo Bi-Flex Edge
One of the products included in the giveaway (and one that I got to try) is Osteo Bi-Flex Edge. This product is perfect for extremely active people – runners, triathletes, cyclists, and so on. Like other Osteo Bi-Flex products, Edge was created to nurture and help defend your joints. But it also has the added benefit of energy support. Its Joint and Energy Complex contains Green Tea Extract, Panax Ginseng Extract, and White Tea (among other things) – enough to give you a little extra boost. Just be sure not to take it before bed!
So now for the fun part – the giveaway! Osteo Bi-Flex has put together a great prize package valued at around $100. It includes:
- 2 Osteo Bi-Flex joint care supplements, including Osteo Bi-Flex Edge Joint & Energy (see above for more information)
- a digital pedometer (perfect for helping you meet some of your New Year’s Resolutions)
- a Camelbak handheld water bottle
- an Osteo Bi-Flex® branded sports backpack
All great stuff – but (not counting the supplements), the water bottle is my favorite. I’ve actually been slightly obsessed with handheld water bottles lately, and I’ve started taking one on just about every run, even the shorties. (Bonus – they serve the dual purpose of carrying my inhaler.) This particular bottle is Camelbak’s Arc Quick Grip, and here are some of the features:
- Includes one 10 oz. Podium Arc bottle
- Self-sealing Jet Valve eliminates splatters and spills
- Elastic webbing with stretch binding, front & back reflectivity, and pocket for essentials
- Can hold my inhaler, keys, and an energy gel (and maybe a lip balm if I cram it in)
You’ll love this thing. Actually, you’ll love the whole prize package. So let’s get on with the entry part! Everything you need to enter is on the Rafflecopter below.
