  • What I Eat Before a Race

    screen-shot-2012-08-15-at-91322-pmBy Laura Conley

    Laura's eating routine before a 10K or half marathon race is just that...a ROUTINE!

    I eat exactly half a cup of cheerios cereal with half a cup of Honey bunches of Oats with 2tbs cottage cheese and peach yogurt mixed with milk.  I also slice up one banana on top and strawberries or peaches if they are in season.  Then I have a cup of black coffee and a cup of green tea along with it.

    About an hour before my race I drink Tri-phase and load my pockets with chia surge.  Now I know many people want the benefits of Chia, but don't know how to consume it during a race... Chia energy gel is by far the BEST way to eat on the run.  The gel is not very thick so it goes down easily and doesn't choke you like some thick gummy candy. The best part is that it absorbs rapidly with without stomach discomfort. With this pre-race meal and during race nutrition, I am set to run my best and win!!!

  • Chia Energy Gel Review

    chia-surge2By Laura Conley
    So, last weekend I was out for a training bike ride with a few of my friend's racing team called P5.  We rode approx. 20miles up the coast and then stopped at our turnaround point to regroup and head back.  At this point everyone pulls out their nutrition source (i.e. Energy Gels, Bars, etc.)  I grabbed my favorite Chia Surge and of course my friend Chris screams "CHIA SEEDS!"  Because he know the multitude of chia seed benefits such as sustained energy, no crash, and plenty of omega 3's.
    So then of course, we had to explain to everyone on P5 what this Chia Seed Gel is and where to buy it.  I had a couple of extra gels on me so I gave them to two teammates.  They both loved them and felt great because when we returned to our cars, we all ran 1hr40min down the beach to complete our brick workout!  The best part is we didn't need to eat anything else because we had so much energy!  I love sharing such a great product!!!! :)
