And the winner is…..

It is giveaway time!

Rock Creek Runner is finding itself with tons of new readers from No Meat Athlete this week.  So as a thank you to all of those visitors for both reading my guest post on No Meat Athlete and for clicking over, I thought I would give something away!

 Nathan Quickdraw Plus:

In my opinion this is the best handheld water bottle on the market.  With adjustable straps, the perfect size pocket, and a 22oz bottle, it is great for long summer runs when you some extra fluids.  It is a nice addition to any runner’s gear, and something you can never have enough of.



Buddy Fruits Fruit Snacks:

The other day I wrote a post about 3 natural alternatives to energy gels.  One of my favorite options for long runs is the Buddy Fruits puree.  They are delicious, refreshing, and a great way to get those much needed nutrients during a long run.  Because I’m feeling generous today, I thought I throw in 3 of these fruit snacks for you to try out with the Nathan Handheld!

  1. Yes – I am one of those new readers. The fruit snacks are intriguing – liked your post on substitutes for gels. And I would much rather have something natural that works. thanks!

  2. Already liked you on the FB. Shared as well! commenting on…. Asparagus, I enjoy the way it makes my urine smell.

  3. I am also a new reader! I found your blog because I live and run in the DC area. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  4. I’m one of the new readers from No Meat Athlete! Loved the post! Liked you on FB as well. I occasionally go out on a trail run when I’m feeling in a running rut and it usually gives me the kick that I need, but I’m gonna look around for some awesome nearby running “getaways” as well!

  5. Really enjoyed the guest-post on NMA and I’m excited to read more posts about trail runs in the DC area! Already liked and shared on FB.

  6. I LOVE the Nathan Quickdraw Plus. I fit in my ID and 2 gels and I”m ready to go! I always bring it to races, and it gets me through about 6 miles without having to slow down at water stops. That being said, it’s getting a little old, so I’d LOVE to win a new one 🙂
