Brownies. Who doesn’t like them? I had really high hopes for this bar as I love brownies and who wouldn’t want a substitute that is more healthier for you? Today’s bar is Quest’s Chocolate Brownie.
I think my high hopes is what tarnished the bar for me. While the bar has the flavor of a brownie, it’s not strong enough and there’s something extra that is throwing the flavor off.
I’ll have to give this bar another try before it goes on the pass list.
Overall: One more try.
Today’s bar is Quest’s Coconut Cashew and wouldn’t you know it, it does taste like coconut and cashew. It is a very nice flavor that works well together. You can see little chunks of coconut in the bar. This one goes on the buy again list!
I didn’t know any better, so I had a Yoda backpack that had a waterproof speaker that had Yoda talking every minute or so. Why was this a bad choice? The first mud pit, Yoda became a 40 lbs deadweight. Through the 100+ yard uphill army crawl under barbed wire, Yoda had many stitches break.

Today’s bar is Strawberry Cheesecake by Quest Nutrition.
This is a great tasting bar! It really reminds me of eating a cheesecake. The strawberry flavor is very well defined in the bar. This one is going on my must buy again list.
This run, I had a contest on Facebook that whoever donated the most money to St. Judes got to pick what I raced in. My friend Seth and his family donated were the highest bidders and chose Lion-O from the Tundercats. What a great choice! This was also my second Warrior Dash in two days. My official completion time was 54:13.15. Continue reading 2012 Warrior Dash – Day 2
Pilates X, this workout is a tough one for me, but I like it. It mixes in ab work with stretching. I even built up a little sweat!
Year two of the Spartan Races for me. What a difference training for a race is to your time. This was the first obstacle course race that I actually trained for and dropped about 45 minutes off my time. Official race time: 1:36:55. Continue reading 2013 Spartan Sprint
This might be the last year for the four of us to race in the PNW Warrior Dash as a group. It was our third year and due to Sarah moving to NY for work, it was decided that we all dress as different versions of David Bowie. Official race time: 47:14.45. Continue reading 2013 Warrior Dash – The David Bowies
In my quest to find protein bars that are good for you and taste good, I decided to give the Quest Bars a try, based on a lot of good feedback from my P90X3 support and accountability group. I fired up my web browser and ordered a 12 back of flavors from Amazon. Today’s bar is Cinnamon Roll.
The flavor was like a weak cinnamon roll, so the title fits, but it is not going to go on my favorites list. Overall, the bar is fine and having 20g of protein is a good thing.
Overall: Not bad.
Welcome to my journey though obstacle course racing and training for the events. As time allows, I will back fill the races I have completed and pictures from them.
