Friday Favorites: Emergen-C

 

Good morning! It’s expo day for me! I am going to be so busy today and tomorrow, but I LOVE it! It’s a good busy. Smile I love Running Skirts! Anyway, it’s Friday, so that means, of course, Friday favorites! This Friday favorite is a little odd, as it really doesn’t have a whole lot to do with running directly….but INDIRETLY, it does. See, I managed to come home from Disney with a nasty cold (Jen it’s not your fault!) and knowing I had to go out of town again, I wanted to be sure to get well as fast as possible. I headed to the store and bought these little gems.

Yes friends, I bought me some Emergen-C! I haven’t been sick since well…January when I came back from Disney after running the marathon, and I have heard a lot of people talk about this stuff, so I figured I would try it. Now, mind you, I don’t even like orange juice, but for some reason I bought the orange flavor (see, told you I am sick!) I was dreading the yucky medicine taste, but I have to be honest, it’s not that bad!

It has vitamin C, 24 nutrients, 7 B vitamins, antioxidants, and electrolytes. It is supposed to increase your energy and boost your immune system (yes, please!)

You pour the little packet into some water, stir, and drink. I prefer to put it in a small glass of water and get it over with instead of dilute it in a full glass. I have been doing this twice a day, and while I still am not well, I really think it’s helping! I have felt yucky but not that full blown I can’t move I want to die feeling that we all know and love. So, this stuff is highly recommended by me! I think it was $11.00 for a box of 30 packets, so not too bad! Hopefully I will stop feeling sick and feel more like this:

in no time!

I really hope I do, because, well, I am running a half marathon tomorrow! I only ran twice on vacation, and only 2 miles each time. Oops. The air conditioning at the gym was broken so it was SO HOT, and it was even worse outside, so that’s all I could manage. Hopefully choosing to rest instead of run will do me some good!

QOTD: What do you take when you feel a cold coming on?
