Excited to go for our first ride
*I am doing the Jelly Bean virtual 10k and 5k. I am excited since this will be my first virtual race. Thinking of what to wear for costuming!

*Weird experience and slightly scary yesterday. I went for a small run after work in our neighborhood. I was maybe 3/4 in a mile and I stopped at a light to wait and cross. Felt like my heart was pounding harder than normal, almost chest pain, and then a surreal feeling like when you are about to pass out. I grabbed some sports beans from my pack and quickly ate them. After few moments the feeling passed. I went back to normal feeling and kept on going. no ill effects last night, just tired after a rough work week. I think I was hydrated enough, I went through what I ate and felt it wasn't low blood sugar. Not sure what it was. Terri is concerns and felt I shouldn't have kept going. Anyone else ever experience something like this. Just a side note with taking up running and exercise my resting HR is about 40-50.
*I entered a GU giveaway for some drink mixes. I didn't win but GU sent me a couple samples of the RU Roctane Ultra endurance drink powders in Tropical punch and Lemon lime. I loved them. I used them on longer runs and sipped them gradually over the run. I felt I had consistent energy and the taste was great. Even better my system tolerated them well. FTW!! I have need energy products. I was not asked by GU to review these. I just wanted to share my humble and honest opinion .
