“Our running shoes have magic in them – the power to transform a bad day into a good day; frustration into speed; self-doubt into confidence; chocolate cake into muscle.”

Many runners eat too little fat. They are important for immunity, recovery, energy and health. Examples of good fats include: nuts, seeds, peanut butter, oils (like Olive oil), oil-based salad dressings, olives, avocado, soy nuts or soy milk, fish.

Sodium is lost through sweating. It’s the most important electrolyte to replete. You can find sodium in:
Crackers, pretzels, sports drinks, soups, pickles, salted popcorn, tomato juice

Joke of the week:

imagesQ: Why do runners go jogging early in the morning?
A: They want to finish before their brain figures out what they are doing.


OK…  so if you have a better joke, send it to me!
