Honey Stinger Review & Giveaway (Day 6)

Happy Saturday all! 

Who raced or ran long? 

I know it took me getting pushed out the door by B to get my long run in. The weather was gorgeous and I was so glad I ran. 


I use MapMyRun for the live tracking and it said I ran 8.69 miles. The old Garmin was off by a lot, either way no snow or ice is a good day!


What else could I possibly share with you for Day 6 of My Favorite Gear Giveaway? The fuel that gets me through long runs and races: Honey Stinger!


Since I began training I have had the hardest time fueling for training runs. I have an extremely sensitive stomach that does not take well to gels or chews. I would end up having to cut training runs short to make it home to the ladies room. It was not only discouraging but I worried how I would survive in a race. Would I hit a wall? Could I rely on the race fuel?

I was happy when I went on a whim and bought a Honey Stinger Organic Vanilla Waffle. Prior to a long run, I had a waffle with some water. I really enjoyed the taste and texture. I hit the road after about 45 minutes to make sure everything was settled. I finished the run with no pain, no bathroom stops and no fatigue. Oh happy day! 

Here are nutritional facts:


Please note I am no health guru and not sure if these will work for everyone. I have had nothing but great results! The waffles are not too big, so I have been able to tuck them away in an arm sleeve or my Fitletic Runner Belt!



Honey Stinger has a wide arrange of products for fueling! They even help us better understand which product will meet your dietary needs.


I love a company that understands the importance of find fuel options that keep our nutrition on track! 

Now for the fun part! 

One lucky reader will win a 16 pack of Honey Stinger Organic Vanilla Waffles!

  3. Still don't have a grasp on the fueling during a run, probably don't run long enough. But I want to learn!
