Day 11 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by CarleeMcDot.com today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER ELEVEN YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 11 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series because they are just that awesome.

Up for grabs today are: 11 boxes of PROBAR goodies.


For today, DAY ELEVEN, eleven winners will be selected, each winning a box of PROBAR goodies.

To say the hubby and I are #FueledByPROBAR would be an understatement. I'll have a BASE bar for breakfast before workouts, the hubby takes a MEAL bar with him to work for lunch every day, we both snack on FUEL bars when we're out and about, and I fuel my long runs with BOLT chews. Once you find something that works, stick with it, right?!


And now they offer Nut Butters, oh, say it ain't so! I was able to try them all and they are DELISH with a capital D!

We love PROBAR for oh so many reasons. Just a few of them are because they create delicious, convenient, healthy food products. Their ingredients are plant-based, coming from sustainable sources which have a small impact on the earth and a significant and positive impact on our bodies. PROBAR doesn't compromise when it comes to quality, and their Non-GMO Project Verified products are proof that packaged food can maintain quality, sustainability, purity and taste. Not only that, PROBAR uses certified organic ingredients in their products.


Because PROBAR ROCKS MY SOCKS (and because I was able to sweet talk my contact into hooking you up), eleven winners will grab a case of WHATEVER PRODUCT they want! You could pick a tried and true fuel for your runs, the new live probiotic nutritional bars or even a variety pack to try multiple options at once - the possibilities are endless!

Entering this giveaway (along with the other #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas giveaways) is easy-peasy! Simply use the Rafflecopter widget listed below on the giveaway blog post and cross your fingers. Some entries are available daily so I'd HIGHLY recommend entering early and often. (Shoot, I would even go as far as suggesting you set an alarm to remind you to come back to this page every 24 hours so you can take advantage of as many entries as possible!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Now, the nitty gritty details... All entries are verified, so please make sure to do whatever the required action for the entry is or it will be disqualified. I would hate for you to miss out on winning due to a technicality, so if you are going to click the option, make sure you do whatever it asks or a new, random winner will be selected in your place.

Also, this giveaway will last seven days, with the winners being picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winners will have 24 hours to reply to the congratulations email from me to claim their prize. That means, for this giveaway, it will end on December 17th at 11:59pm PST and the ELEVEN winners will be chosen on December 18th.


And, finally, the winners must have a US mailing address. International shipping seems to cost an arm and a leg these days, and customs is a major headache, so to make it easier (and cheaper) on the brands who have offered up their products, the winners must live in United States of America (or at least have an address we can ship to within the US).

With that said, BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS! And don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what is up next in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas (I promise you do NOT want to miss out on any of these giveaways!)!

PS Just in case you aren't one of the ELEVEN lucky winners, you can still use coupon code "CARLEE15" for 15% off your order (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! So get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!

I usually have a piece of toast with peanut butter and honey before heading out for a long run. I have had the regular probars before - I didn't know they had so many new options now! That sriracha peanut butter looks delish!!

Ashleigh Vogel said...

This is a great give away! ProBar is a huge hit in our house for my daughter that is DF and myself (GF)!

Megan Warzecha said...

Fueling is my downfall. I'm okay until I get up into those 18 milers and beyond. I've loved Tailwind and had a lot of success with it, but I hate racing road marathons with a handheld or a hydration vest, and some big city marathons don't allow a vest. So I'm going back to Clif shots. Maybe Probar would be a good solution.

Leah Brown said...

I have a hard time fueling during runs, my stomach does not appreciate anything much more than water and grapes and maybe a gummy bear or two, so I'm always looking for something that's agreeable.

Sarah N said...

I use Gu during long runs and races

MVB said...

Nuun and Huma

ProBar base mint bars are MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE and are my go to "reward" after a good long run!!

Michelle B said...

I have only used the probar Bolt Chews and they were pretty tasty. I can't usually stomach much on my long runs, so a chew or two is all I can handle.

Crystal Fretwell said...

Gu. But would love to try ProBar!

Katrin Lemmon said...

Before longer runs, I fuel with a piece of buttered toast with cinnamon and sugar. After my run, I usually eat a smoothie with all the granola!

Unknown said...

Strawberry Banana or Berry Blast Powerbar Gel. Always. Like 10 years of Ironman and marathon training with those suckers! - Kim K.

Usually a protein shake with a banana and peanut butter.

Heather Mundwiler said...

kim said...

I haven't trained for longer than a half, so I don't usually fuel while running. I like the idea of chews, though. My husband has tried several brands and we are always looking for new ones to try.

Jolene said...

Banana or toast before a run and then Gatorade chews during.

The Fit Fork said...

I've been taking date bars, but these would work nicely!

Mostly I've been using GU energy gels. I have also tried Hammer Gel and Cliff Blocks. I haven't ventured into bars much but would love to try!!

Jamie Theriault said...

I use vanilla or Salted caramel gu, but love probars after I run!

Sarah said...

Usually I go with Sport Beans and Nuun. I don't like to eat anything before I head out, so I like easy to handle stuff while I'm out.

Britany G. said...

No joke, gummy bears. I buy them in bulk at the grocery store! I plan on trying gels when I start marathon training in the spring :)

Keri Russell said...

Usually gels

Anna Bortz said...

Gu.... But I would love to try other options!

Amanda Williams said...

I like Gu gels - but I need to be better/more consistent with it.

wvmello said...

Honey Stinger waffles for before long runs, and Honey Stinger chews for during! Nothing tastes as good as that first chew part of the way into a long run

Elizabeth Calandro said...

I’m trying to find something I love before and during runs! Would love to get to try this!

Melanie said...

I’ve tried gels and homemade bananas chews but haven’t found anything I love yet for fueling during long runs. I’ve even gotten a bag of gummy bears from a gas station I was running by once because I was in a pinch!

amie said...

I have Honey Stinger waffles or chews or Gu.

Paul C said...

I'm so glad you're choosing to endorse ProBar. They are seriously the best thing out there! I fell in love with the meal bars and everything else is icing on the cake.

Kyle Balke said...

I really like gummy bears and snickers bars!

Stephanie Abdon Fulton said...

I used to fuel with candy corn but it was a major food aversion during pregnancy...and I;ve never gotten it back :)

Chelsea Shearer said...

I usually don't eat too much, but if I do I go for a bar over gels.

Andrew said...

What is my go-to fuel for longer runs?
I start with solid fuel, like PRObars. Around midway through I generally switch to gels or nut butters; easier to digest and get the glucose into my system right away.

Trista MJ said...

During a long run I take an RX bar a clif bar or a probar!

Virjinia Harp said...

Lately, my go to fuel has been raisins but I'm always looking to try new things!

Danielle Fogerty said...

I would love to try these

ryball said...

I love Vanilla Gu because it is easy to pack and it doesn't really taste like anything. I can't stand anything that is heavily flavored for longer distances.

Andrea La Bella said...

I love the strawberry/banana GU for during the race. Before usually oatmeal with banana and all natural almond butter (trader joes preferably) =)

Kyle B. said...

I use Hammer Gel. (Cuz it's hammertime!)

Mostly Clif Gel Shots, but I like the shot blocks too. Would love to try the ProBar!

Typically it's a honey waffle of some sort along with fruity chews. Can't wait to start trying ProBars!

Jenny said...

I honestly haven't ran long enough for fuel this year. Kept all y runs less than 10 miles. On the longer ones, I did use Glukos gummies.

kallie said...

I love Probar base, oranges, and tailwind.

Katie said...

Banana before I run, maybe toast with peanut butter if it’s a real long one. And I like the honey stinger waffles, but I’m always up for trying something new.

Beth Reitinger said...

Anonymous said...

Amother day of training and still going!

Goldie said...

I'm a fan of Honey Stinger gels.

Amy Scott said...

I would probably eat these before or after a run. I don't do many long runs but when I need fuel, I go with salted caramel gu.

Sabrina Fowler said...

No matter how hard it may seem, get up and attack the day all over again. Do something that is not the to do list. Do something for myself, every little thing counts.

Lisa Bess said...

While running I have tried a bunch of things, but havn't found one I love. Pre-run is either oatmeal with some added yummy stuff, or egg salad sandwich.

I’ve always wanted to try Pro Bar products, especially the bolt chews for long runs.

Go to fuel is Huma. Super easy on the tummy!

G said...

A protein smoothie or protein bar fuels me up.
Georgiana

Katrina said...

I love a good protein shake :)

@fluffytohealthy

Samantha Hopkins said...

Usually I'm good with Nuun. For double digit runs, I'll take a GU. Haven't ever tried this product before.

Anne Amador said...

I fuel with a slice of toast and peanut butter before long runs and then use Nuun and Gu during. It's worked for me so far!

Lynds Fraser said...

Shotbloks and Clif Bars! YUM!

klahane ridge said...

Even though my longest length is currently 5 miles, I’m still figuring out what works best for me - something small enough that’s capable of giving me fuel without upsetting my stomach. So far it’s been half a banana and 8oz of milk with protein powder in a shaker bottle. These bars look awesome & I’d love to try them! :D

MichelleCat said...

Peanut butter and bananas on toast with a follow-up smoothie
