How I Am Incorporating Alert Caffeine Gum Into My Fitness Routine

Thank you Alert Caffeine Gum for sponsoring this post. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Anyone else struggling with getting back into a routine after being off for the holidays? I know I have. Add in that Lil Man was sick an entire week before Christmas and daily naps became the norm, I'm really struggling to make it through a normal day.

Although we haven't gone back to school yet, Hubby is back to work. And that means if I want to get in a workout or at least one without company and interruptions, I have to get up early and workout before Hubby goes to work. And the rest of the day is the usual go go go.

Thankfully I've had the opportunity to try Alert Caffeine Gum. 1 piece of Alert Gum is about the equivalent of a half a cup of coffee. (And for me that means no jitters). It's just enough ooomph to give me the boost that I need.

August 23, 2008 - 5K

A couple of years ago, I ran faithfully. In fact, six days out of the week, I would get up and run religiously with my best friend. We would run, talk, laugh and vent. How I miss those times!

In July 2007, I got married and moved away from friends and family. Running alone was different for me than running with a running buddy. So different in fact, that I basically stopped running. But this July I started trying to 'get back on track' with my running, and I signed up for a 5K. This was the first 5K that I had run in five years. I was both excited and nervous.

But, I'm pleased to say that I ran the race and I came in just under 30 minutes. I didn't break any records, but I am pleased with myself. Getting out there and running alone is difficult for me.

  1. there you go! Good work! You don't have to prove somebody else something. Just go out and run for your own benefit and joy :-)
    A friend of mine also left family and friends and running-mate to travel to another faraway city because of the job. She is now doing walking. It took her a long time to find some buddies to come along with.
    Run on, Marcus
