Start Off The New Year Right: My 2020 ‘Resolutions’ with BabbleBoxx

This post is sponsored by

Recently I partnered up with BabbleBoxx to sample some of the many great brands that included their products for me to try. I unboxed my ‘resolutions’ themed box with just as much gusto as I started the year. After all, I have so many goals to accomplish and any help I can get is always appreciated.

These are the great products I found within to kick off my New Year. I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing 2020.

AfterShokz Aeropex open-ear headphones

The AfterShokz Aeropex earphones immediately caught my eye. They are unlike other earphones because they sit on the outside of your ear, not inside of it – hence the ‘open-ear’ distinction! The earphones looked like they might become uncomfortable or too heavy on my ears, but they didn’t slip when I took them on a short test run. 

Another thing that really spoke to me was their waterproof functionality. A lot of the top earphones are not waterproof (or sadly, water-resistant), but the Aeropex AfterShokz are. This is something that sets them apart from the rest. There is a special Offer/Discount as well. With the discount code: RESET50 you will receive $50 off an Endurance Aeropex bundle Valid (dates: 1/6/2020 – 3/6/2020)

Refreshing Face Wash, 10% AHA Essential Renewal Lotion and Essential Facial Moisturizer from Alpha Skin Care

Trust me when I say this, but running in the cold NYC weather makes for some chapped and irritated skin, so I have to admit that I go through bottles of moisturizer and lotion. Alpha Skin Care included their 10% Essential Renewal Lotion and Essential Facial Moisturizer and I’m excited to have another option for my skincare regimen. 

Get 20% off all Alpha Skin Care purchases through 4/15/20. Use the offer code Babble20.

Full Spectrum CBD Softgels and CBD Nighttime Gummies from CBDistillery

I have talked to great lengths about how important proper supplementation can be for runners. This is especially true for any supplement that helps you sleep. The nighttime gummies from CBDistillery are packed with Melatonin, which is something I really appreciate. CBD is proven to be an effective strategy for pain management as well, so the CBD softgels provided by CBDistillery could factor into my running recovery! Especially after one of my higher-volume workouts. Use the code: NEWYEARNEWME to get a 20% discount.

The American Youth Sports Pledge Certificate from The National Endowment for Youth Sports

A pledge for youth sports? Sign me up! The National Endowment for Youth Sports included their Youth Sports Pledge Certificate and I couldn’t be happier to sign up. I am always looking for opportunities to support athletes in any form that I can. A big reason why I became a running coach and athlete was to spread my support where I can, so this was a great opportunity. 

Organic MCT Oil and Organic MCT Powder from Nutiva

I recently learned that taking MCT – Medium Chain Triglycerides – has a positive effect on exercise endurance performance and increased metabolism. So the benefits of utilizing MCT Oil and Organic MCT Powder from Nutiva are obvious. I love how convenient the oil is for getting my needed MCTs.

And the powder tastes great as well. I will incorporate MCTs in my daily nutritional arsenal. Really relevant product for me because I’m always thinking about ways to protect and strengthen my body. Just like an endurance athlete, I’m in it for the long haul. There is a discount code here as well. Use NEWYEARBOXX30 for  30% off MCT products (One use per customer. It can’t be combined with other discounts. Active from today until Mar 31, 2020).

Buddha’s Office – a Book by Dan Zigmond

I’m pretty excited about this book. For those who follow me, you know that I like to meditate and hold eastern philosophy concepts close to my heart: so Buddha’s Office: The Ancient Art of Waking Up While Working Well sounds like it will be right up my alley. I am always trying to apply more mindfulness to my daily grind. Looking forward to getting more strategies to use in my work.

Stomach Settle Drops from UpSpring

Runner’s Stomach is a very real thing that affects all endurance athletes, so I am always glad to have help managing it. You never know what you’re going to get when you run a marathon. You can prepare for it, strengthen your gut microbiome, and eat all of the right things, but you often also need drops to provide additional help. UpSpring included their Stomach Settle product within the box and they taste great! 

Thank You! 

This was a fun box and a great way to start in 2020. Be sure to check out every brand that was included in my Resolutions box from Babbleboxx and happy New Year!
