Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

Do You Know About WTRMLN WTR?

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I had hoped to get some time to write while we were away these last 3 weeks. I think this the longest that I've ever been away from home, and we had a great trip. However, I just couldn't seem to fit in writing. We were really just too busy working on projects.

I've lived in Pennsylvania for almost 8 years now, and I know that I have acclimated to the climate here. I was not prepared for the heat and humidity in Mississippi and Texas.

My morning runs were less than stellar. In fact, I had barely made it a quarter of a mile some days when I felt the need to walk. I had 30 minutes to get in a workout before our day began (due to sunrise). So my workouts were usually shorter than normal.




As we were doing outside work in Texas, I knew the importance of hydration and keeping my electrolytes balanced. I'm not a fan of sports drinks. First of all, I really don't like the taste. Second, have you read the ingredients? I can't pronounce most of them. But by the 3rd or 4th day of working outside, my legs had started cramping ... and I mean bad. I knew it was past time for something other than water. Because it was all that I had at the time, I turned to a traditional sports drink. I encourage you not to underestimate the importance of electrolytes, but I believe you should also know what you are putting into your body - including chemicals in sports drinks.

And I believe I may have found a healthy alternative to traditional sports drinks. It's called WTRMLN WTR



It's cold pressed watermelon juice, with watermelon rind and a touch of organic lemon. It has 6 times the electrolytes of most traditional sports drinks. It contains 60% daily value of vitamin C, plus contains lycopene and L-Citrulline, and zero (that's right) zero added sugar. 

One serving has 60 calories (a bottle is 1.5 servings) with 740mg of potassium per serving. 

How did it taste? I gave it a try after a hot evening run once we were back home in PA. 


And I liked it. I am not a huge watermelon fan, but I liked it. The lemon was a nice touch. It didn't leave an aftertaste, and I definitely felt refreshed after drinking it. 

Would I use it in place of a traditional sports drink? I sure will. This is what I will also be giving Hubby when he needs more than just water. 

I really encourage you to check it out - I'm definitely a new fan of WTRMLN WTR
