Kara developed HINT in response to the growing wall of sugary juices and sodas. Yay for health! HINT is available in many delicious flavors and can be found in grocery stores and retailers all over the United States or purchased online at:

The Bay Area produces so many great natural products!  Founder of Juice Beauty Karen Behnke started a truly organic line of body products. Juice Beauty products have a 98% organic base, with many of the juices and other natural ingredients sourced locally – and using California’s solar power to manufacture these amazing products!  There’s proof to back the claim that these products help defy age and clear blemishes.  They are clinically validated, authentically organic, and have powerful action without the use of all those chemicals.  Wow!  Whether you’re 20 or 60, you will benefit from Juice Beauty.  You’ll get to check out the claims with your sample packet in the goodie bag, AND you can go sample other products and get your questions answered at the Juice Beauty at the Expo.  Go talk with the ladies there and go check out the full line at:

Rock Tape
“Go stronger, longer” and that’s just what Rock Tape helps you do.  It’s not just for injuries!  Rock Tape also helps with coordination and movement, helping you keep going strong even when you’re really tired.  When you’re tired, your form gets sloppy and you slow down. Rock Tape helps prevent that break down – and in effect, can help prevent injuries.  And of course, it helps “shore up” the areas around any injury you may already have.  Stop by the Rock Tape booth to get your questions answered and to get taped-up!  See what a difference it may make for your Title 9K!

Thanks, LUNA!

FlexPower
Flex-Power Active Woman is a newer version of Flex-Power, made just for us gals.  It’s great for those seeking a more natural alternative for pain relief.  Flex-Power listened to insights from female athletes and formulated this muscle warm-up and recovery cream with active ingredient Arnica, as well as vitamins, green tea, aloe, glucosamine and MSM.  Both regular and Active Woman Flex-Power are virtually odorless: you won’t smell like a locker room after rubbing in this smooth, soothing yet invigorating rub!  Perfect to get you warmed up for the race – or to relieve your lovely running muscles afterwards!

Juice Plus+
Eat your veggies!  That’s what Mom always told us, right?  Even if we are good girls and eat as much as we can from the produce department, often it’s still not enough, especially given our busy lifestyles.  That’s where Juice Plus+ comes in. It’s a convenient, affordable, and natural whole food based nutritional product providing nutrition from 17 vegetables, fruits, and grains. It’s not a vitamin supplement!  It’s a capsule, chewable, or beverage designed to get all those little phyto and micro nutrients that just often get missed in our attempt to eat super healthy.  Stop by the booth and sample some and see what they have to say!  And thanks, Juice Plus+, for providing sample in ALL the goodie bags!

Javita Coffee
Now this isn't your average cup o' joe! This is coffee…evolved! An innovative and unique formulation that harnesses the power that coffee already offers—the health benefits, antioxidants, pick-me-up, and of course the flavor—and we have given it an extra edge. It’s infused with phytonutrients into a proprietary blend of estate-grown coffee, providing every delicious sip with the added benefits of health and vitality.  Javita’s unique plan to distinguish its coffee from other brands is to not only give you the benefits of coffee, but also the benefits of the natural herbs.
