Heather Gettings Gowrie, atop the Mt Tutoko glacier in Fiordland, New Zealand.
Heather told us, "I'm so glad I packed it for my trip to New Zealand, knowing I couldn't buy it there. Every day was packed full of activities. Having my 5-hour ENERGY each morning perked me right up, ready for the next adventure including landing on glaciers and bungee jumping for the first time!"
Though Heather's life isn't all bungee jumping and helicopter rides, she says she has a 5-hour ENERGY shot in her holster for her daily activities as well.
"Taking 5-hour ENERGY has definitely improved my energy on so many levels, from waking up faster in the mornings to having a better workout at the gym & Pilates, to staying more focused and alert at work."
Like Heather, our third place winner, Brad Parker, is also a fan of the a.m. 5-hour ENERGY boost. You can see from his submission that Parker keeps a stash of 5-hour ENERGY in his office desk drawer - who wouldn't want to wake up to that?
"5-hour ENERGY has become very much a part of my morning routine, and gets me off to a great start," Parker said. "Also, it's made a fantastic coffee-substitute, which has resulted in my teeth becoming whiter as a result of staying away from the staining effects long-term coffee usage has on my choppers!"
Well, we're glad we can keep your teeth in tip top shape, Brad!
The fifth place winner of the "Where's Your 5-hour ENERGY Shot?" contest has a job that requires an extraordinary amount of energy. Emily Kines runs a household full of boys - including a little one who is only 4 months old.
"I take 5-hour when I feel sluggish and have a hard time getting it together for the day, or when I know I have a long night ahead of me with my lil' baby," Kines said. "[5-hour ENERGY] keeps the 'zombie feeling' away!"
