Sharkies Prize Pack (giveaway)

It's giveaway time!

On a long run recently, I took a couple packs of Sharkies Organic Sports Chews with me to keep me going on a hot day.  I got through those 15 miles eating these, versus normal gels.  I've been opting to eat chews over gels in my running nowadays because I just find them more palatable and easier on my stomach for some reason.  Plus, they do pack a few more calories, which is a good thing in this case.

I normally associate cute little chews with candy, but these actually contain natural electrolytes.  Plus, they were light to carry and very tasty, too!  Each pack is about 140 calories.  The only downside I found to the sport chews is that they stuck to my teeth a tiny bit more than my normal choices, and the packaging gave me a fight at times.  This could easily be solved by conslidating them into a baggie pre-run, or eating them BEFORE running would be much easier than during.

Want to win the prize pack below?  It comes with these Sport Chews, a neat water bottle, Under Armour shirt, and Omega-3 fruit twists for the kiddies (or yourself!).

  1. I purchased a pack of these to try after hearing you talk about them. I don't see the pack that I purchased in your giveaway so maybe that is another variety. I think it was a 'smoothie' pack. I haven't tried it yet. I hate getting stuff stuck to my teeth while I am running. Happy long weekend!

  3. I have been looking for a non-gel alternative for marathon training that is soon to start, these look like a good option. The gel is just too much like squirting icing in my mouth.

  4. I love Sharkies. They are one of the few things that sat well in my stomach during my 100-miler (I pretty much survived on Sharkies and Silk Chocolate Soy Milk for the last 30 miles).
