Here's this week's template:
Post Your FitLibs and Tag @GatoradeEndurance
After you complete your workouts and fill in your Fit Libs template, post it on Instagram. You can post it in your Instagram Stories or as a regular post.
IMPORTANT: When you post, don't forget to tag @GatoradeEndurance and use the hashtag #GEFitLibs.
After you post, you'll get a DM from Gatorade Endurance asking where to send your free samples. My DM came within 24 hours. My Care Kit arrived in less than two weeks.
Don't Wait to Play. Supplies Are Limited.
If you haven't tried GE products, here's your chance. But remember, the free Fit Libs Care Kits are available only while supplies last.
The kit includes a pocket-sized journal and felt tip pens, plus thirst quencher and energy gel samples. The game is a fun exercise diversion during these weird times.
FYI: I'm a fan of Gatorade Endurance gels and thirst quencher. I'm always happy to get more, especially for free! They're easy on my stomach and taste good. I really like the gel texture — it's so much easier to swallow than the super sticky kinds.

The Gatorade Endurance Fit Libs Challenge
A couple of weeks ago — on a day I needed an extra push — Gatorade Endurance released a "FitLibs" fitness challenge.
The challenge is based on the Mad Libs game. Mad Libs is a word game. You fill in the blanks in a template to create a funny story.
For the FitLibs version, you do exercises to earn the words you use to fill in the blanks. It's a little workout for your body and mind! It was fun to pick an exercise, do it, then post my #GEFitLibs to my Instagram stories.
Here's the Week Two Challenge posted on April 28. The game was still on when I posted this.
My #GEFitLibs Care Kit Arrived in Under 2 Weeks!
After I posted my Fit Libs on Insta, Gatorade Endurance DM'd me. I filled in a fast form to get my FREE #FitLibs Care Kit!
The care kit includes gels and thirst quencher, plus markers and a journal. I'm a sucker for stickers, so I was happy to see the colorful sheet of Gatorade stickers. Check out my haul:
New Gel Flavors + Caffeine
I'm especially happy about the new caffeine gels that came in the kit. Lemon-Ginger and Strawberry sound soooo good!
The Care Kit samples let me test the new flavors with caffeine right now.

Here's a Fun Way to Mix Up Your Exercises
Sometimes, we all need an extra nudge to keep working out. I use all the motivation tricks I can find each day. Yesterday, Gatorade Endurance released a fun fitness challenge.
Gatorade is posting a weekly series of "Fit Libs" in the spirit of Mad Libs. Mad Libs is a word game where you fill in the blanks on a template to create a story.

Do the Fit Libs Workout; Get a Care Kit
As Thanksgiving approaches, I'm wrapping up my Gatorade Endurance Running Journey. It's the perfect time to say THANKS to Gatorade. They made sure I had enough fuel to train and race for four months!
Fueling in Florida
In August, I got the chance to stock up on Gatorade Endurance as I pursued my Fall race goals. This was a thrill for me since I love the Endurance formula.
I live in hot and humid Florida, so hydration is serious business. Extra electrolytes and carbs are vital, especially on long runs. Ignore them and it's easy to dehydrate and bonk.
Another important factor is finding the right fuel for your body. After trying Gatorade Endurance last year, it became my primary fuel. It goes down easy, and never upsets my stomach.
Disclaimer: I’m promoting Gatorade Endurance as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to find and write race reviews.
I also choose Gatorade Endurance because of consistency and taste. The easy-to-swallow gels come in Blackberry, Apple-Pear, Mango, and Vanilla. Yum!
During a long run, I NEED something fluid and subtle like the GE gels. Sweet, sticky gels don't work when I'm running and breathing hard. They're messy and hard to get down.
The same goes for fluids. I can't digest too much sweetness. The GE thirst quencher powders are light and refreshing. I can measure out the powder to suit my taste.
I pour some in a bottle, add water, and shake, shake, shake my way out the door.
Winter Racing and New Goals
My Fall half marathons didn't play out to plan, so I'll keep pursuing my goal of a new PR. It's gonna happen, I just know it! I have a 15K, 10K, and half marathons scheduled.
I live in Florida, so Winter is my favorite running season. While I like the challenge of running in heat and humidy, I LOVE how it feels to run in chilly temps. BTW, chilly means 50s to a Florida weather whimp like me!
