You will have more power and feel stronger and build your endurance. So channel your inner Rocky and let me know what you think! Keep in the back of your mind, this will also reduce risk of injury.
Beyond excited to tell you about my next sponsor, Dr. Cool. It is my honor to represent an amazing company with awesome products. When thinking about sponsors, it was very important to work with companies, who believe in me, and have products that I use and that I love- no exceptions!
Dr. Cool is a chemical free cool compression recovery wrap made from coolcoor. Get it damp, flash freeze it for 20 minutes and it will stay 40 degrees cold for 30 minutes. Although I am not injured i do a lot of preventative maintenance to take care of my body.

1. Wet the patented blue fabric on this inside of the wraps
2. Put it the freezer for twenty minute
3. Wrap it on targeted areas!
Wraps come in three sizes, and amazing colors:
The 3”x25” works great for plantar fasciitis, ankles, wrists and small shins.
The 4”x50” works great for knees, elbows, thighs and calves.
The 6”x50” works great for large thighs, and torsos/backs.
Dr. Cool is a must-have! Wraps are machine washable. While you are at it, check out their cooling hats, cooling headbands and cooling shirts. Im confident you will love these products, try it out and I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

It was such an honor to meet the Lululemon team in the natick collections store. They truly went way out of their way to help make my dreams come true. I met with Natascia and I had a blast with her at a "fit session" in the store. I tried on so many clothes and I stepped out of my comfort zone and learned so much! I learned that when you purchase their clothes, alteration is free with a purchase! Did you know about LULUlemon's running line? i feel like superwoman in their clothes! My favorite pair of shorts are the "what the Sport shorts". The Luxtreme fabric is cool and smooth, and very comfortable. these are my racing shorts. They fit like a glove with flattering shape retention. Easy access side pockets on each side, for iPod , money, keys etc. The clothes are very breathable and non sweat material. A lot of their clothes have reflective detail, great for am/pm running. Their pants and shorts have continuous draw-string, just pull to tighten. Im a huge fan of their racerback tanks. They are very breathable tank tops, made from x-static to make for an odor free run. The tank is a perfect fit, not too tight or too loose with very comfortable soft material. Please set up a lululemon fit session and tell me what you think! You will be SO happy you did. It was an amazing day! You will LOVE their staff, they are so helpful, knowledgeable but above all so kind.
Check out my favorite compression conditioning wear from CW-X. This is the highest quality sports performance gear apparel . The compression shorts, 3/4 pants and tights will be great for me to train in, and of course race the 7 continents in as they will fully support my legs to help me decrease fatigue and provide incredible support. This gear is studied and tested by scientists to target and support areas and to help with recovery and also is made with UV protection. This gear is 100% breathable with very light fabric with a perfect, comfortable fit. What didn't they think of, but then again they are scientists.. :) Muscle support is very important to me. I'm looking forward to improving my speed, endurance and recovery with my new CW-X products. CW-X has a booth at the Boston Marathon, and they are in just about every specialty running store and City Sports! Try a pair and let me know what you think! Fair warning, CW-X is addicting as they are a must have! Check out their newest colors and locations.
I am HAPPY to report that Newton Running Sneakers will be supplying me sneakers for my World Marathon Challenge journey. I am LOVING the women's Kismet sneaker. I am a huge fan of the colors and durability of these sneakers. There is great support with tons of cushion and they really feel like slippers with the broken in feel when you lace them up. With great stability, they are easy on your shins, because really who has time for shin splints!?
It is an honor to be an "am-bad-assador" for Orange Mud Trail Running gear. Its a really great product with an awesome CEO, Josh Sprague and team behind him. I love their no bounce hydration packs, this is a must try! I have the single barrel hydration quiver, (pink because why not) and I love it. I don't even realize its there as it is a very light product with the best breathable material. Learn more about Orange Mud here and don't forget to like their Facebook page!
Ultima Replenisher took me under their wing and agreed to sponsor me, a dream come true! I started using Ultima Replenisher to keep me hydrated as my go-to electrolyte replenishment and vitamins. My favorite flavor is grape, although raspberry is a close second! Perfect for during or after a run or workout! Ultima Replenisher is known for helping with leg and stomach cramping. This is a delicious way to replenish lost electrolytes without added sugar, as there is no sugar in this product . Stevia is the added sweetener so don't feel guilty drinking it as a refresher during the day. Like hot beverages? It makes a really good tea as well, just add water! You can find Ultima Replenisher at Whole Foods and quality retailers. Like them on Facebook to learn more about their amazing zero artificial products! I'd love to hear what you think about the company who believes in me and supports my dreams! Give them a try and let me know your thoughts! You will not be disappointed in this healthy non artificial electrolyte.
