In today's news: Summer is nasty. We all know it. It always is. Here in Virginia, I can choose between minimizing the temperature and sun exposure by running at 5:30am but with 99.99% humidity, or I can wait for the humidity to drop while hitting 95 degrees with a burning hot sun (oh, and it's still humid too). Pick your poison. I'm what you'd call an efficient sweater. My work juices start flowing sometimes before I even START my run. After a few miles, I'm just about soaked. I sometimes like to run long distances, so hydration is KEY. That goes for before, during and after running. When BibRave gave me the opportunity to test out a hydration related product, I jumped right on it!
Hello and happy Tempo Thursday to you, my friends. I'm in the middle of another summer-ish week of running that has had its good days and its bad ones, but they'll be more about that later. Today I'm focusing on a product review, because trying things is awesome. Nuun Rest is a Nutrient-Rich, Relaxation & Recovery drink tablet (you get 10 per tube). It's enhanced with magnesium, tart cherry extract and potassium, which promote a more restful night of sleep. Mix with 4-6 oz. of hot or cold water and enjoy. I personally think it's meant to be hot.
Hey hey hey! Seems like it's been a while since I chimed in with anything. I still need to recap last week's marathon training (or what's left of it), but first it's time for a product review!
