NUTRITION IS MORE THAN DIETING

What do I eat before a race? What do I eat after a workout? Am I allowed to eat a few extra Thin Mints? Nutrition can be intimidating so we’re taking the subject head on to get some clarity! In anticipation of National Nutrition Month in March, we’re launching our Nutrition 101 Seminar early. The focus will be to get some of the basics down, especially before race season begins. We will cover more than just the food you can find in our Pit Stop. This will be a session about having a healthy attitude towards food and consciously choosing foods to eat for meals and for snacks. 
 
A diet doesn’t always have to be what to stay away from, what will harm you or what will affect you negatively. Food isn’t something to always feel bad or guilty about. Foods are the way to good health; a contributor to a good workout session, having good energy throughout the day and sleeping well at night.
