What's A Little Chia Between Friends

“So how did you meet Taylor?” my roommate Jill asked me as we were heading out the door this past Friday night. We were on our way to meet up with a group of my friends she had not met before.
“It’s a funny story,” I told her, as a smile came to my face. “I was running down Pacific Coast Highway one morning last fall and this guy caught up to me and just hung out right behind me. I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t shake him, even at our six minute mile pace.
Neither one of us were going to slow down. Finally he said to me after about two miles, ‘you keep a pretty good pace.’ We started chatting and as it turned out he coached at the local high school, ran in college and we have a ton of friends in common.
We decided to meet up for breakfast Sunday morning. “It’s been so hot out,” our friend Greg commented, “I’m super dehydrated.” Of course that was my moment to start talking about one of my favorite subjects: the amazing hydrating capabilities of Vitalyte are the perfect way to recover from a hot day, long run or a stellar Saturday night. I’ve lost count of the number of Sunday morning “house calls” I have had to make to friends who had a long and challenging Saturday night... they call me the hangover fairy but I digress...
When we walked out to our cars after breakfast, I opened my trunk and tossed everyone a few samples of Vitalyte. I also tossed Taylor a Chia Surge Endurance Gel. “What’s this?” he asked. I told him about the amazing benefits of chia seeds and the other great ingredients that set this gel apart from anything else on the market. “You better bring it with you on our run tonight!” I told him. “You aren’t going to run as fast as you were that first day I met you are you?” Taylor pensively inquired. “No I'll take it easy but take Vitalyte and bring your chia. You'll be happy you did.”
We all went our separate ways for the afternoon and around 6:20pm, when there was a cool breeze and the sun was lazily dangling towards the horizon, Taylor and I met on the corner of Chesterfield and Pacific Coast Highway in Cardiff, chia gel in hand. We set out for another great run and I really realized what I love about what I do: I've met some pretty amazing people. Some friends chat over coffee, but my crew chats over an eight mile run and we chat over chia. After all, all of my friends now love Vitalyte so- what’s little chia between friends!
