Product Review: EAS Soy Protein Powder

written by runnergirl training


EAS Sports Nutrition supplied me with a variety of their soy protein powder to try out and review.

I tried the vanilla EAS soy protein powder. It is a nutritionally balanced and delicious supplement!

It has 20 grams of soy protein. The nutritional information is here.

I liked that it is vegetarian friendly and works well if you are lactose intolerant.

The powder is smooth to drink and is not chalky. It has a smooth texture and tastes great!

I have used many different brands of protein powder over the years. This is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it!

Dallas Marathon Race Review

written by runnergirl training


I ran the Dallas Marathon on December 9, 2012. It was my third Dallas Marathon, formally called the Dallas White Rock Marathon.

I had been training for months for the race. I used the Hal Higdon Intermediate 2 marathon program. My goal time was 4:30.

I have been in school full time for nursing school prerequisites and taking care of my mom with stage 4 brain melanoma. Around my obligations this semester I was maintaining a training volume of 70-90 miles per week. I was adding onto the Hal Higdon program, it did not require that weekly mileage.

During the race I hydrated with Gatorade, Gatorade Energy Chews, Clif Bar Shot Bloks and water. I drank 6 ounces or ate 2 chews about every 15-20 minutes. I used the portable restroom around mile 17.
