I completed my second Bourbon Chase journey this last weekend. While it may sound like some sort of pub crawl with lots of whisky, it’s actually a 200 mile relay race across Kentucky following the Bourbon Trail. You read that right. Teams of runners pushing through 200 miles of open roads in about 30 hours. A little bit of crazy, a lot of fun… and Pure Romance had a few Bourbon Chase necessities that I couldn’t have survived without.
First, a confession. I didn’t actually run in the 2014 Bourbon Chase. I contributed as a driver for our team due to a hip injury. My husband ran, and I wanted to be a part of our great team. Second, a little background about the BC- 200 miles, 2 vans with 6 runners in each, 30 straight hours, everything you need must be contained in the van. Bourbon Chase is a fun event, but definitely an endurance event that should never be taken lightly. Plus, the weather wasn’t cooperative, with rain and chilly temperatures throughout the entire event.
Luckily for me, I had some Pure Romance gear with me to help me get through 30 straight hours of rain, lack of sleep, and 6 sweaty human beings trapped in a van with me. You don’t exactly feel like your sexy self in this type of situation…
I took some Body Dew to keep my legs and arms soft and smooth. The cold and rain had my skin feeling dry and a little itchy. Body Dew keeps even the driest skin happily hydrated and feeling years younger. This gentle moisturizer is infused with beneficial sweet almond oil. Just a little spritz was enough to reinvigorate my skin to get through 30 hours of exposure to the elements.
I also packed a must for runners (and apparently for drivers)- Between the Sheets. Between the Sheets is a powder-based spray that adds a majestic scent anywhere you spritz it. Between the Sheets absorbs moisture, putting an end to irritation on your skin from damp or wet clothes. As a runner, I would spray a little in my shorts before a race. As a driver, I sprayed some in the legs of my pants to stay comfy, and a little inside my jacket to stay sexy and fresh!
There is no denying that a key component of sexy is staying fresh. Pure Romance has some great products for you athlete girls out there. Wanna give some a try? Get in touch with me today to get your own!
