CLICK Active Review

Coffee is my friend, so when I was given the opportunity through Sweat Pink to try CLICK Active, a protein mix that has coffee in it, I was was excited.  Although I received the product for review, all opinions are my own.


Coffee and Protein—was it too good to be true?  I start most mornings with a protein shake.  Sometimes I add cold coffee to my shakes to give myself a little boost. So how much coffee are we talking about?  According to their website, CLICK has “150 mg of caffeine from pure, premium espresso coffee to boost alertness, improve performance and decrease recovery time. Natural caffeine from real coffee, not synthetic caffeine or added coffee flavor.”

When I received the canister of CLICK, it also came with a shaker bottle.  Although I have a few of these, I was excited for the purple color of the shaker bottle.  (Purple is my jam!). The canister lists three different ways to prepare the powder and I decided to try all three.

Shaken
Using the shaker bottle, I added some water, ice and my measured out the CLICK using the scoop in the canister.  I was pleasantly surprised at how fine the powder is—it dissolved nicely and didn’t clump to the bottom as I drank it.  The taste was good, not overly coffee nor overly mocha.  Some protein mixes have a chalky taste and this did not.  I typically don’t like protein mixes in the shaken form but have had it three times this week served this way.  So easy and so good- perfect for those mornings when you're in a hurry!


Hot
Because there is coffee in the mix, it makes sense that you could drink this hot.  In order to fairly give my opinion, I decided to try it this way too.  After heating up some water and adding the CLICK, it was a go.  It was okay, but in all honesty, this was my least favorite way to drink the CLICK.  That being said, I am not a huge fan of hot coffee and very seldom drink it.  


Blended
The final way that you can prepare the CLICK is to blend it.  The first time I blended it, I just used some ice and water—it reminded me of a blending drink from a local coffee shop.  Yum!  The next couple of times I switched it up, adding frozen fruit and such.  My favorite way was with a frozen banana and a little bit of peanut butter.  So delicious!


Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with CLICK Active.  It doesn’t have that power/chalky taste that many protein mixes do.  I’ve been drinking it everyday for almost two weeks and I’ve noticed that I haven’t been having my daily coffee.  The CLICK is giving me the right amount of boost that I need. 

Are you a coffee drinker? If not, how do you get that extra boost?

Until next time, happy running.

Run Laughlin Race Recap

In March, during a weekly #RunChat I won a race entry and weekend hotel stay for the Run Laughlin Half Marathon. (If you’ve never joined a #RunChat, get more information here—it’s always a fun time!) The race is relatively new—this was only the second year, but I was excited.  The race run in two states & in two time zones—the nerd in me was excited to add this to my race experiences.. The race wasn't until December, but suddenly it was nine months later and I was ready to go.  

The race was on a Saturday so I was driving out to Laughlin on Friday. After meeting up with the #RUN619 and Movin’ Shoes for my morning run, I was on my way.  The drive is 5-6 hours and I frankly wasn’t looking forward to it.  I had been monitoring the weather for about a week and it had been showing high winds for the drive—they weren’t lying!  The drive ended up being pretty uneventful and I arrived in Laughlin with plenty of time to hit up the expo and explore a bit.


After checking into my hotel, I h…

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for the Runner You Love

Whether you’re someone who loves Valentines’s Day, someone who celebrates Singles Awareness day or someone who thinks it’s just another day, it’s always a good time to get something for that someone special in your life. If you’re shopping for  a significant other, your best friend or even yourself, here’s some things that I think are great for showing some love to the runner in your life.

The Lululemon Test Truck Experience

I don’t own any Lululemon, but I’ve been told by my friends who love the brand that once you try it, you won’t want to wear any other brand. Earlier this year, I heard about their #MoreThanMiles tour that took #TheTestTruck to different cities so that people could do just that- test the Lululemon.  I was excited when I learned it would be coming to San Diego and quickly started following their Facebook page so I could stay up to date on the stops they would be making while they were here.

When a group of friends that run early every Monday morning learned that the truck would be near their normal running spot from 6:00am-8:00am, I decided to join them.  We met up at 4:55am for a short run then came over to the Lululemon Test Truck to get in line.

What is the Test Truck?
It’s exactly what it sounds like—it’s a truck where you get to try out a piece of Lululemon gear.  While you're there, you can also test out a pair of APL shoes which I heard were super comfy and light. (I opted out o…
