Color Run, Michelob ULTRA Light Cider, and Rainbows



As you know I love running.

Well, love is probably not the right word, it's more like I try desperately to love it. I like the idea of living a healthy lifestyle and challenging myself. I like the excitement of 5K's, the atmosphere, and the people.


In an attempt to run at least one a month, June's 5K was the Color Run, a 5K where a different color tossed at every kilometer. You start the race out white and end it looking like a rainbow puked on you.

I recommend checking it out if it comes to your city, but prepared to be scrubbing the colored powder off your skin for at least a week (my back is still blue).
Running makes me thirsty, and I am not talking about being thirsty for water (wink, wink). I also need to watch my calorie count. I LOVE cider. That crisp, apple flavor hits the spot after a sweaty workout.
The problems with cider are the whopping 180 calories per serving, it's heavy, and can be pretty sweet. It's good, but not right after conquering a 5K.
I was asked by Blogher to review Michelob ULTRA Light Cider. Since I am a big fan of all things ULTRA light it was a perfect fit. I couldn't wait to crack open one and experience it for myself.


I LOVE MY JOB!

Michelob cut the calories of traditional cider down to 120. That is 1/3 of the calories! One third my friends, or three ciders for the calorie count of two if you are into math.

It wasn't as heavy as regular cider. I was sweet, but you don't feel like you are drinking apple juice. My husband even liked it, which is a pretty strong compliment from someone who doesn't like sweet drinks.
