GreatistYou Day 37: Darby and Adrienne Get Ready to Race

Welcome to GreatistYou, a new social experiment where we see what happens when five people decide to change their health-and broadcast their journeys for everyone to see. Four goals, five contestants, and six weeks to crush said goals for the promise of a better life (oh, and $1,000!).

With only a few days left until the big race, Darby and Adrienne (@greatistdanda) are focusing on the following four things to ensure victory: hydration, rest, fuel, and confidence. While a 10K is nothing to sneeze at, we have faith in them and know they'll leave a trail of smoke in their path.

Adrienne's knee continues to give her problems, but a new shipment of RockTape should stop the issue before it starts, since, according to Adrienne, this is the only kind that really works for her.


  • We found out it takes two hours of intense training to make Regina (@greatistregina) feel loopy (though it doesn't seem to impact her performance). Hey, some of us get loopy after two minutes of training.
  • We're totally jealous of Jasmine (@greatistjasmine), who seems to be having the best time ever on her cruise. Not only is she taking mini-hikes at all the port stops, but she took over the dance floor for a few hours onboard. Is it easier or harder to dance when the ground is swaying back and forth?
  • Brandon (@greatistbrandon) is back at it again with his crazy concoctions. Ground turkey, taco seasoning, black beans, and edamame. We'll have to try this one at home.
  • Get ready, because we're featuring GreatistYou mentor Jessi Kneeland (@greatistmentor) on our weekly video recap series next week!
