A few weeks ago Samantha, a representative from CherryPharm Inc, contacted me to see if I would like to try their product know as Cheribundi. Cheribundi is a tart cherry juice and is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins. I specialize in mooching and conning people into giving me free stuff, so I quickly agreed to try their product.
Cheribundi means “an abundance of cherries” and I looked forward to trying the drink because I love cherry flavored anything. I was that kid on the block that you would see running around with a cherry kool-aid mustache and sticky cherry flavored popsicle hands. I can even tie a knot in a cherry stem with my tongue. Don’t be jealous of my skills. I wasn’t able to do this overnight; it takes practice.
I was pleasantly surprised with the drink. I was expecting it to be tart since it claimed to be a tart cherry drink, but I didn’t find it that way at all. It had a hint of sweetness to it, but not overbearing.
Friday, I ran 8 miles and when I got back to the house, I reached for the Cheribundi and it was a surprisingly great thirst quencher and I plan on packing one with me for after my marathon this weekend. I would also like to pick up some more, I seriously didn’t expect to like it that much, but I do!
Anyway, I’ve been sick this week, so I have truly embraced my taper. In fact, I’ve enjoyed lying around so much, I’m not sure that I really want to run anymore. Now put your eyeballs back in your sockets, you know I’ll get tired of being lazy and want to start running again (I’ve got a marathon to run this weekend anyway). In the meantime, I’ve enjoyed catching up on my People and Runners World Magazines. I’ve pondered deep thoughts such as:
“Why is Spencer Pratt such a jerk?”
"Why don’t we have cool hats like this in the United States, I mean, what woman wouldn't want that look?”
“If Valerie Bertinelli can finish a marathon, certainly I can do it too!! How did she get into Boston anyway?”
Ok guys, I’ve been blog slacking again, so I have TONS of posts to catch up on. See you soon and I hope you are having a great week!
