Powered by Vega Sport

Ask and you shall receive! I told you all I was working on something special for you all! I got many emails and comments about what Vega Sport is and how it helps and discount codes and my oh my. For those that aren’t aware, Vega Sport is a clean, plant-based, natural, three-stage nutrition System. It was made specifically to help athletes perform at their best—before, during, and after training and competition.

You have the Pre-Workout Energizer which gives you immediate and sustains energy. It is a unique blend of 12 synergistic plant-based performance-improving ingredients, like green tea, and coconut oil to increase endurance and enhance your mental focus.


For sustain energy, there is the Electrolyte Hydrator which is an alkaline drink mix giving you all the nutrients needed to keep you hydrated while you run.


And for Recovery there is the Recovery Accelerator which is a recovery drink mix specifically developed to address post-workout recovery. It delivers a 4-to-1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein for optimal muscle glycogen replenishment. Also reducing inflammation, muscle and joint pain, and reduces recovery time.


For recovery, there also is the Performance Protein which is a multisource, plant-based protein powder, featuring 25 grams of complete protein, 5,000mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving. It improves strength and performance, and helps build and repair muscles.


These are just a few from the Vega Sport line. There are much more to choose from like gels and bars. But these are the ones I use with every run. I alternate the performance protein with the recovery accelerator. Depending on how my run went. They also taste really good and I LOVE that everything is plant-based and you can make shakes with them!


As you can see and many of you have noticed that I use it all the time. I have been using Vega Sport for almost 2 years now and I have noticed a dramatic change in my performance and recovery time. As a back of the pack runner, and prone to injuries this made things easier. I used to run 12-13 minutes pace and needed about 3 to 4 days in between runs to fully recover from pain. I now run comfortably 9-10 minutes pace and my run days can be back to back with no pain. (With exception to my back obviously)

Now…to those of you who have used it and love it and those of you that are curious..I have a discount code for you!!! I had gotten many messages and comments about a discount code and here it is =) VEGA DISCOUNT CODE:  RUNNERUNLEASHED20 it gives you 20% off AND free shipping! Like I said, ask and you shall receive!

    If I were to win, I’m most looking forward to trying the Electrolyte Hydrator. I’m terrible about drinking water (I am getting better with it) and realized that it’s definitely affected my performance in the past. I’m curious how this might help out in addition to drinking more water.

    I followed you on social media and liked Vega on FB. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway and sharing your experience with the products!

    Hi! If I were to win, I would be most excited to try the Performance Protein. As a newly transitioned vegetarian (I guess the correct term for me is pescetarian.. for now!) who is in the process of going full plant-based, I’m always looking for ways to add more protein into my diet. I’m not the best at post workout fueling and think this might be my ticket to getting into a good routine. I’ve been wanting to Vega Sport for a while but just haven’t committed. I’ve noticed a huge impact on my performance & recovery times since going veg. When you say that you’ve noticed a dramatic change since using the Vega products, it makes me excited to if I could improve my performance & recovery times even more. I’m running Chicago in October and looking to get a PR!!

    I’ve followed you on all your social media accounts as well as liked Vega on facebook.

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway!

    I’m most looking forward to what you said about helping with pain. I have a lot of pain and muscle issues and to be able to train for my half better, with less pain, fewer issues, would be amazing. And to have something more natural, plant-based is even better!!
    I already follow you here, Twitter, and FB (no Instagram :-() and now liked Vega on FB!! Woo hoo!

    I’d be most interested in trying the performance protein. I’m always looking for a way to reduce recovery time so I can get more hard workouts in. I’m following your blog, Instagram, and twitter, as well as your progress!

    Honestly, I’d love to try any of it. I’m a 12-13 miler, so I’d love ANYTHING that would make me run faster.

  7. Kim Avatar

    I would love to try this. I started running after I had my first child after never being a runner growing up. I fell in love with running half marathons. Well now after I had my second child (who is almost 2) I’ve started to lose my love of running. I am about 4 min/mile slower than before I had this lil guy and just can’t seem to speed up. I would love if I could find something that could help me get back into “my” pace and help me love running again! I have dreams of someday running an ultra!!!

    I already follow you on FB and also follow Vega now!

    Hi! I would be most excited to try the pre workout energizer. As I an just getting into long distance running (training for my first half – the WDW Princess!) I am now beginning to experiment with beans, gels, and blocks. This sounds amazing!

    Either way, from your description, I am excited about giving Vega a try. Longer I run, the slower I seem to get and I REALLY crave the speed!

    I follow you on FB and Twitter, and now follow Vega on FB!

    If I were to win I would be most excited about the recovery protein but would enjoy all the products. I have tried their pre-work drink and really like the energy.

    When I win I would be most excited to try the pre work out energized. There are days that I don’t want to go for a run because I am so physically drained from the day. I have gotten better at going out anyway, but so feel having this would help give me that extra push. I have already followed you on instagram, FB, and twitter. I have also like Vega on FB.

    I would love to try the sport pre-workout energizer. I love their protein powder as I’m vegan, but have yet to try their other products. Thanks for hosting this giveaway. I know all the items would help in me while I train for my first marathon. 🙂 I follow you on fb, have subscribed to follow your blog & I found vega on fb and follow them now too. Thanks for the chance!!!! You’re such an inspiration. ❤

    Hi! If I were to win I would be most excited about the pre workout. I work all day and could really use the after work to pump me up for the gym!

    Already follow you on social media and I put it in the comment.

    Looking forward to trying the pre-workout energizer. Seems like a unique product.

    I’d like to try the energizer. I do a or of early morning runs and workouts, so I could use some extra energy to get going.

    If I won, I would look forward to trying the hydrator! It’s getting hot here and being dehydrated is bad for training!

  22. Angela (@MoveOverMS) Avatar

    I think the Recovery Accelerator would be most beneficial to me, as I have multiple sclerosis and one of the symptoms I have the most difficulty with is fatigue/lassitude, and this seems like it might be quite useful for combating this symptom!

    Too, I think the pre-workout Energizer could help on those days when fatigue/lassitude conspires to hinder getting in my daily 5 miles (it helps to have a goal/target so I don’t give in to the limitations of the disease).

    Ideally, I’d bookend both of these products and use the rest of the half marathon training kit (like the electrolytes to help address Uhtoff’s phenomenon, which is a heat response that worsens neurological challenges in MS) to solidify performance, health, and nutrition goals.

    I follow you on Facebook and Twitter, because you never cease to amaze and inspire me. We can overcome together!!

    I would be most excited for the electrolyte hydrator. I’m traing for my first half marathon and it has been difficult to figure out what works and what doesn’t during my long runs!

    I am most excited to try the hydrator. I have tried so many different things but just haven’t found a good fit for me. I’m hoping this is it. I was hoping to meet you at the Echo Half but I struggled so bad with the heat and humidity that day. I’m hoping to never have a repeat of that race!
    I follow you on FB and Instagram, you continue to inspire me every day.

    I’ve heard so many people rave about the Vega products so I’m curious to try them. First on my list would be the pre-workout accelerator. Sounds like something I need!

  28. Kate Avatar

    I’ve never tried the pre-workout energizer, so that’s what I’d be most looking forward to.

  29. Kippes Avatar

    I’m a huge Vega and Brendan Brazier fan. My wife and I drink a green smoothie EVERY night, it’s the best high nutrition density meal option and takes the stress of a meal decision out of the mix. It’s like drinking rocket sauce for our next day’s workouts. If I win I will add these Vega products to my stash, fueled by plant power!

    Thanks to Vega’s tweet, I found your blog, followed it, and found you on Twitter.
    Great connection.
    The blender bottle graphics are bad arse!

    What a great contest!!! I’d love to try the whole system as a SYSTEM. I am a recovering injured runner who just started back to my 4 times a week 2 mile runs. I need as much organic non-chemical help that I can get 🙂 thanks so much for this opportunity!!!

  33. Christine Avatar

    I would love to try the performance protein! I want to help feed my body correctly as I run and don’t lose any weight. I love following you Facebook. I met you at last year’s OUC half! You rock! Thank you!
