Get recharged: A giveaway

I was not happy about the 5 a.m. alarm this morning. I was even less happy when I woke up at 4:56 a.m. to go to the bathroom.

But I bargained with myself. As I only had 3-4 miles on the schedule, I could afford to get up a bit later. I reset the alarm to 5:20 a.m. and laid back down.

The catnap wasn't long - I ended up getting out of bed at 5:07 - but sometimes we just need a little something.

A little recharge, if you will.

Smoothie King recently launched a new, natural energy smoothie, Pure Recharge. It¹s made from whole coffee berry, green coffee bean, Vitamin B12 and gingko biloba. It comes in two flavors - Strawberry and Strawberry Mango - and each are less than 260 calories for 20 ounces. If any of you have been to Smoothie  King, you know that's a calorie bargain!

To celebrate, Smoothie King is kicking off its #NeedARecharge contest, honoring the everyday moments where regular people need a recharge of energy. From toddler tantrums to tiring traffic, the Smoothie King community will be encouraged to share images of their everyday extreme either on Instagram using hashtag #NeedaRecharge, or uploaded to Smoothie King's Facebook page. The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 prepaid credit card to create their own special getaway to recharge their energy.

But it gets better. At least for those who live near one of the 600 Smoothie King locations. The smoothie bar and nutritional lifestyle center has generously offered to give one Healthy Strides reader a $50 gift card. Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below.

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post but did receive a gift card for tweeting about the #NeedARecharge gift card. All opinions are my own.
