Oh, Cinco De Mayo… tacos galore, guacamole up to your eyeballs, friends together enjoying beautifully crafted cider-infused margaritas ... Wait, craft cider-infused margaritas?!
Our friend (and kickass bartender) Will, from Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar in South Boston, tried our new summer seasonal Hibiscus Cider and immediately had an idea. After a few tasty attempts (taste testing is a hard part of the job, but someone has to do it!), Will put an awesome twist on summer’s new “it” Cider with HibisThis. Peaches and lemon play nice with the floral and crisp apple notes in Hibiscus Cider. Find Hibiscus Cider near you to whip up HibisThis just in time for Cinco de Mayo, or head to Loco during the 5 Days of Cinco and have Will shake one up for you!

Happy Spring! For most runners, the cold weather during the winter months means a break from outdoor running. Now that the weather is getting warmer, and the days longer, it’s time to get back out there! But before you get started, our friend from Anchor Leg Coaching, Erin Grigsby, put together some fool-proof tips to help you transition back into shape!
Put a spring in your step with new shoes!
Running shoes need to be retired after you’ve put a certain amount of miles in them or haven’t used them in a long time. Running in old shoes that need to be retired can cause injury because you have lost the supportive cushion. I recommend going to a running shoe store to get guidance on what will work best for you.
Too much, too soon.
It is great that you want to be running more outside, but you want to do this in a smart way. Running too much before your body is ready can easily cause an injury. Increase your mileage slowly, since doing too much at once can burn you out.
Set a goal.
Goals are a great way to stay committed to running. You can set more than one goal for yourself. For example, try and set a long term goal of completing a race or increasing mileage and a daily goal of getting your run in. Harpoon sponsors all kinds of running events. Check out some of the things they have going on this season!
Pack the outfit.
No matter if you are starting your run from work or home, it helps for you to pack the outfit you are going to wear. This helps you stay more committed to your run. Just make sure to have clothes in case it rains (hat and rain jacket). Consider buying a new article of clothing for the season. The more excited you are about your workout clothes, the more likely you are to wear them!
Running is Better Together.
Social support can keep you more committed to your goals. Try and schedule runs with others at least once a week and incorporate some post-run fun into your routine. The promise of a post-run beer with friends will surely give you something to look forward to after you get your sweat on!
Water, Water, Water!
Drinking water is important no matter what the temperature is outside. Make sure you have water throughout the day especially after the run. Water is in beer right?!
Enjoy the change in sunshine, scenery and temperature! Good luck!
