Running in Florida has been a struggle for me. I feel slow and defeated, but I trudge on because I have a goal. My goal race this year is the NYC Marathon with Team ASICS!!!! Check out webisode 3 below:
Training for this marathon consists of running (of course), fuel (that’s where Hemp Heart Bites come in) and recovery (foam rolling, stretching, etc.).
Running in Florida has made me question my abilities as a runner and as a marathoner. Between the move here from New York to starting a new job to dealing with the oppressive humidity (Which I love, except when I am running) I have struggled, but I know in the end I will once again run the NYC Marathon and that keeps me going.
Fueling for running, especially long runs, has always been a challenge for me. I practiced my fueling options last year prior to the NYC Marathon throughout every long run. I thought I had it down and I still had stomach issues on race day, nerves maybe??? This year I am practicing my fueling options again and in addition to gels I have added Hemp Heart Bites into the mix.
My husband and I are big fans of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts. We add them into our cereal, yogurt and even use it as a topping to salad at times, so when the opportunity presented itself for me to try Hemp Heart Bites I jumped at the chance. Eight pieces of these little bites contain 15 grams of carbs, 10 grams of protein,10 grams of omega 3&6, organic sweeteners and salt, making them a perfect refueling option for running. I have been using them for a post run recovery snack for my shorter runs and as mid-run fuel during my long runs. The little bites are small, delicious and most importantly gentle on my stomach!!!!!
