Rock N' Blog Training Box & Giveaway!!!

Earlier this year, I was selected, from around the world, as 1 of 100 Rock N Blog Ambassadors To say that I was thrilled, and extremely honored, is an understatement! I'd never run a Rock N Roll race before but had heard amazing things. Plus, the company's focus on keeping running FUN is something I could get behind.

I ran the Rock N Roll Seattle Half Marathon in June and, after coming back from a back injury, it wasn't my greatest time. Still, I had a BLAST! The energy on the course is contagious and everything from the expo to the VIP tent to the incredible medals was awesome! 

I'll be running Vegas next! I'm actually doing the Remix challenge which means I'll be running the 5K Saturday and the Half Marathon Sunday. You get an extra medal for doing both which means I better leave room in my suitcase for all the bling! ;)

(PS, if you want to join me, I have a discount for the Half Marathon and Full Marathon you can use to register until October 1st. Discounts for this race hardly ever happen so act fast and come run the strip with me!! Just click THIS LINK and enter the code KAELLAONTHERUNLV )

The best part about being a Rock N Blog Ambassador is the community. We have a FB group where we are able to interact with the other members and hopefully inspire each other. Our main contact, Ashley, is just the sweetest and keeps us all in the loop, and pumped up, about anything and everything!

A few weeks ago, she surprised us by sending us all a Rock N Blog Training Box! We couldn't reveal the contents until everyone received those but it was fun to watch as everyone posted their "It's HERE" photos on social media!!

It took a little longer to get to Canada but I had a nice surprise waiting for me one lunch hour!

Now, that everyone has their box, I wanted to reveal what was inside!!

1. Brooks Performance Hat 

2. CEP Compression Socks

3.  Gatorade Endurance Formula Powder Stick (X 3)

4.  GU Energy Labs
5. Nature's Paths Food- Qi’a Cranberry Vanilla Cereal
6. 70% Maui Jim products after taking their online training!
7. Transamerica: Power bank cell charger

8. Garmin Coupon
9. Rock N Blog Technical Tee
10. Digital Hug from Ashley (my favourite part!)

I passed on a couple of the items to friends already (sharing the love is fun) but I saved something for one of YOU!

See you in Vegas?! 


  1. I joined my buddy training for a BQ on runs that she didn't want to do solo. The big day came and she met her time! She's now gone on a few runs as I train for my race next month. So we've helped each other during these hot summer runs :)

  2. In the summer we give away vegetables from out our garden to our family friends and neighbours. It's nothing big and fancy, but who doesn't love fresh home grown veiggies.
