Sponsored: Staying Active

u by kotex staying active

I like to stay active, whether it’s running, rock climbing or hanging out with friends…I am always on the go. But some days, my body can’t keep up and it slows me down. The monthly monster. When that happens, I turn to U by Kotex.

I know, it’s a little TMI to talk about it but I need serious protection on those heavy days. You know what I’m talking about. The days when getting out of bed is a struggle and all you want to do is indulge in a lot of Halloween candy.

Still, I pull myself out of bed, put on my workout gear, and go trail running.

When it comes to most workout clothes, they’re pretty form-fitting. That means, any leaks along the way would spell disaster and embarrassment! I needed to stay dry and accident-free, so  I tested out the U by Kotex pads while keeping up with my daily exercise schedule. I don’t like taking days off if I don’t have to, so as I was running and enjoying the scenery around me, I didn’t even realize I was wearing them. Confident that I could still run while fighting the monthly monster, I used them throughout the rest of the week.

No problems whatsoever and as I was nearing the home stretch each day, I felt really good. It could the endorphins, but I think it’s also because I’m protected.

Now, staying active is easier than ever!

I wrote this review while participating in a content series through Clever Girls Collective on behalf of U by Kotex, and received products to facilitate my post and compensation for my time to participate.

    Hi Jess, hope you’re doing well. I have not kept up with the running, but I recently got back into it, i.e. I’ve been running five days this week (for the first time in months). I would not have considered U by Kotex before but I may give them a try. I’m sure this may have been an uncomfortable post to write (who enjoys talking about the monsteration cycle–Modern Family reference), but I thought this was very well done, so kudos.
