How This Early Bird Is Surviving Baseball Season with RaceTrac + Giveaway
Whoever said that “the early bird catches the worm” obviously never had kids. I admit that this mom has never been the early riser. Overcoming my serious dislike for early mornings has now been multiplied exponentially. Why, you ask? It’s officially baseball season. I somehow blinked and now have two kids playing baseball, with games starting as early as 8 am. Between my girl’s first tee ball games to my son’s now 2-hour intense games, I can officially say that I’m…tired. But it’s time to put on super mom pants and come out swinging (with baseball bats, of course). Here’s how this early bird is surviving baseball season with RaceTrac – extra coffee, please.
The Early Bird Catches the Chaos
Red socks, check. Grey pants, over there. Washed shirts, in the dryer. And where are those hats again? Welcome to our Saturday morning routine. Rushed and groggy, I may have a few choice words for those coaches that scheduled our 8 am game time slot. It’s tough to make sure that I have two kids that are dressed, fed and out the door in the early morning hours. And oh crap – guess who forgot to make breakfast for myself, yet again.
Aka I Need Coffee…Crazy Good Coffee
Before we hit the field, we head to our local RaceTrac, where Crazy Good Coffee is always required. New for 2018, RaceTrac now has new coffee machines where you can watch your beans grind right before your eyes for the freshest cup of coffee every single time. A shot of Hazelnut, a pour of my favorite creamer and one of six blends of freshly brewed coffees at the Crazy Good Coffee bar – that’s the difference between the mom that is cheering every play and the mom that’s barely making it through one inning. RaceTrac always has amazing coffee ready to greet me – and those large cups at a family-friendly price make it easy for me to survive my Saturdays at the baseball field. A few sips in and my groggy morning demeanor instantly changes into Baseball Mom of the Year. Winning.
Will “Mom” for Delicious Breakfast
The key to my baseball mom heart? A hot breakfast. Long days under the Florida sun mean that I need a good breakfast to survive those back-to-back hours on the bleachers. Thank goodness that RaceTrac has a variety of delicious breakfast options, whether you’re the breakfast sandwich mom like me or the hot dog and soda mom (I don’t judge).
No matter what kind of early bird you are, we all can use a boost for our busy mornings. I’m surviving baseball season with my secret weapon – RaceTrac. Head into your local RaceTrac and make those early mornings better. Be sure to follow RaceTrac via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest delicious early bird offerings, exclusive deals and more.
It’s time to hit the fields with delicious coffee and my Sausage Egg and Cheese Muffin in hand. Play ball!
