Aquaphor at the Orlando Runner’s Classic AND a giveaway!

A few weeks ago, the 2013 Orlando Runner’s Classic went down at the gorgeous Orlando World Center Marriott. I’ve attended several conferences at the World Center Marriott, but Aquaphor so graciously paid for my stay the night before the race and I could not have been more grateful.

Orlando Runners Classic

This was my first time hearing about the Runner’s Classic and while I didn’t get a chance to run it this year (oh boy…wait for the story), I will certainly be back next year. I’m no runner but I have run a few 5K’s and I love participating in the ones that are low pressure and have a “fun” aspect to them. The Runner’s Classic is perfect for families of all ages because there’s a little something for everyone. There’s the Move Free 8K, Jif & Smucker’s 5K, Carnation Breakfast Essentials Great Start 2K Walk and Publix Children’s Fun Run. The entire atmosphere is just light, far from intimadating and…fun!

To prep me for the race Aquaphor not only comped my race entry but I was also gifted with an Aquaphor Training Kit. Florida’s weather has reverted back to the high 80’s but last month, it was chilly and the ointment was perfect for slathering on the skin to prevent it from getting chapped during the cooler weather.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to run because I suffered severe food poisioning hours before the race. I woke up at 3am with the worse stomach cramps of my life. I compare every bout of pain to contractions and whoa…those cramps were worst than contractions. The pain didn’t subside until shortly after the race started but I managed to make my way down to help cheer on the other racers and to stop by the Aquaphor booth.

Next time, y’all. Next time. Buuuut, on a good note, Aquaphor is so graciously giving me the chance to give away some goodies. One lucky winner will score the following…


Healing Ointment
Lip Repair
Lip Repair + PROTECT

Don’t hate me but I know some of y’all are out there dealing with some crazy cold weather (meanwhile it’s 85 degrees today in Florida) so these Aquaphor products will definitely come in handy.

Good luck! And if any runners have tips on how to train, let me know. I plan to run a decent amount of 5K’s (and maybe a 10K) in 2014.
