My New Favorite Fuel! Honey Stinger Waffles

Skitz Pick

I’ve seen these “waffles”on shelves at sporting good stores for awhile but thought they sounded horrible. When I think of waffles, I think of soft, moist and doughy. Not exactly what I’m craving when I’m pounding the pavement.

Then I visited one of my favorite adventure stores, Backwoods, to purchase a gift. And my workout life changed forever:)

Honey Stinger Waffles-

If my mama had only given me a better name everyone would love me!

Need a jacket so you can workout outdoors? Train in all kinds of weather? You can go bonkers looking at all the options on-line!

NEO-TOTE* Insulated Water Bottle Holders

Skitz Pick

I don’t like to drink warm water when I’m running outdoors. I like a nice cool stream of refreshment that perks me up. This need sparked a quest long ago. Unfortunately, the marketplace let me down. With every gadget known to man available on the web, ways to transport ice cold water  “on the go” isn’t one of them.

I’ve bought fuel belts, waste packs, Camelbaks— you name it– it’s probably in my closet. For runs lasting longer than an hour, I use a Fuel Belt with 2 plastic bottles. Works just fine but in 5 minutes the fluid is warm. 

I had to get creative. After experimenting with various types of bottles, I found these fantastic little “koozies” for the original plastic bottles. They help protect the fluid from the sun and provide good insulation.
