Thankful for my Followers Blog-Hop {GIVEAWAY}

I'm trying something new...I'm joining up with Runaway Bridal Planner and MCM Mama Runs for their "Thankful for my Followers" blog hop and giveaway! 

 

What is a blog hop you ask?

A group of blogs that are all linked together. This allows blog readers who come to one person's blog to find links to other blogs they may enjoy. They click on these links and "hop" to the next blog and so on! 


What's even better than a blog hop?

A Giveaway Hop of course!! A giveaway hop is a lot like a blog hop, however all of the blogs that you will be "hopping" to will be hosting super awesome giveaways :) 
Why would I participate in this?

Well, when I first started this blog I think only 1 person read it...yep, Jess...I think you were the only one :) However, over the last year I have "met" so many incredible, motivational, and supportive people through this blog. I'm thankful for the advice and encouragement they have given me...and I am thankful that they actually care enough to read what I have to say :) 


I figured that this "Thankful for my Followers giveaway hop" would be the perfect opportunity for me to say thank you to all of my followers.

What am I giving away?

Well that is the most important part right? Well I have decided I want to give away two of my favorite products that got me through marathon training and my marathon. (you thought you were going to get through a whole post without me mentioning this didn't you?) 


 3 box variety pack of Cocogo and an adorable (in my opinion) water bottle ($38.49 value)

Cocogo is an all natural, gluten, and tummy ache free sports drink. Not only are the ingredients top of the line, but the taste is even better!! I started drinking Cocogo at the beginning of this year and I haven't looked back. I like other sports drinks...but nothing quenches my thirst and keeps me hydrated quite like Cocogo. I like all 3 flavors...but I would have to say lemon lime is the best! If you win this giveaway you will receive a sample pack (3 boxes with 12 servings in each) so you can try all 3 flavors (lemon lime, grape, and raspberry passion fruit)

*If you are anxious to try Cocogo and don't want to wait to see if you won the giveaway you can use promo code: HEATHER to receive 10% off your order. 


Sample size tin (about 3 servings) of ENERGYbits ($5 value)

If you read my review HERE, you know how much I love these little energy filled algae tabs! I experimented with several kinds of fuel during my marathon training (there I go again!) and nothing compares to these bite sized bits of energy!! I have used them on all of my long runs, for a half-marathon PR, and my first full marathon. I take about 30 before a tough/long run and then 4-5 every couple of miles to keep my energy levels up. I am not even kidding you when I say that I feel a little surge of energy within minutes of taking a few of these. ENERGYbits are my "runner's high" in a tin :)

*If you are an impatient person like me and you would like to purchase a sample of ENERGYbits NOW, feel free to email me and I can get some sent out to you right away. 
OR 
if you already know about the magical powers of ENERGYbits and want to order some you can use promo code: wthwhynot for 30% off your entire order!! 

Enter to win BOTH of these fabulous prizes by completing one or ALL of the options below! If you are a follower of any kind (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Blogger, etc) you get one FREE entry!! However, I encourage you to get as many entries as possible! The giveaway will be open until November 17th, and the winner will be announced November 18th :) Good luck, and thanks again for reading!
