This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Walgreens.
Here on the California Coast, our winters are mild and spring arrives early. The hills are gorgeously green right now, the trees have been blossoming for well over a month. There's really no excuse for not putting on a pair of running shoes and exploring the city by foot. A couple of months ago, I started a 5k training program. I've been off the program for two weeks, due to a lingering cold and a little bit of rain, but I need to get back on the program pronto, especially if I want to run 11 miles on 11/11/11 (a goal I've set--we'll see how that turns out! No promises!).
When the great people at Walgreens sent me a gift card to buy some seasonally appropriate Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products, I decided to pick up a few things to help with my spring training.
First on my list: a package of shoe inserts. These babies keep feet fresher and dryer, help fight odor, and control moisture. On sale for just $3.99, I picked up two packages--enough for my running shoes and some for my husband's shoes as well.
I also picked up some Walgreens brand sunscreen lotion and after sun body lotion. I've long hated treadmill running and almost always prefer to hit the streets for my jogs. Of course, being outdoors, even when the weather is cool, means slathering on the SPF. The sun's rays mean serious business.
Some thick lip balm to protect against weather conditions and some Ibuprofen for the pain following the longer runs are two more must-haves. I bought a couple of each product, so that I can keep them readily available in my desk drawer and purse.
My Walgreens experience was superb. They had all of the items on my list in stock and the associates were helpful and friendly. No more excuses--I'm now fully prepared to jog my way to fitness with the help of Walgreens.
Here's the icing on the cake: every purchase of Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. The fund will provide free preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities. Some of those services will include preventive health tests through the National Urban League Health & Wellness Tour and vouchers redeemable in select stores.
