Half Marathon Monday: #Run10Feed10 Race Recap

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Built with Chocolate Milk.Half Marathon Monday: #Run10Feed10 with Chocolate Milk

Yesterday, I ran my first organized 10K and ran with a team for the first time. I completed 6.2 miles with the Built with Chocolate Milk team, a sponsor of Run 10 Feed 10. Right now, 49 million Americans are going hungry—they don’t know when they will get their next meal. The reality is there is enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life. Hunger is the world’s most solvable problem. To help start solving it, Women’s Health Magazine is hosting a series of 10k races and Fun Runs around the country this fall. For every kilometer run by every participant, 1 meal is donated to help end hunger. About 30,000 people ran Run 10 Feed 10 in New York City. That’s at least 300,000 meals donated.

Half Marathon Monday: #Run10Feed10 with Chocolate Milk

Built with Chocolate Milk is a sponsor of Run 10 Feed 10 because drinking lowfat chocolate milk after strenuous exercise helps athletes refuel and rebuild their bodies so they’re fully recovered for their next workout. More than 20 scientific studies including athletes from sports spanning running, cycling, and soccer support the advantages of drinking chocolate milk after an intense workout. I’ll be sharing even more proven benefits of drinking chocolate milk on the blog next week.

It was an incredible experience to wear the Chocolate Milk orange jersey and hat as I ran down one of my favorite routes–The West Side Highway. We started at Pier 84, ran 3.1 miles south, and looped around to head back to the pier. It was a humid day, which made it difficult for me to run as strong as I would have liked, but it was far more fun than completing yesterday’s workout alone. After finishing the race, I chatted with Hallie and Theodora and met Women’s Health Magazine Fitness Director Jen Ator. Jen is training for the Kona IRONMAN World Championship in a few weeks with the Built with Chocolate Milk team. She told me that she had only run a half marathon before taking on Kona training, which inspired me to reach for an even bigger challenge in 2015. Triathlon, Spartan, both?!

    Hooray milk! I always mix my post workout protein with some powdered milk. Not only does it have the benefits you talked about, but it makes me shakes taste pretty dang good too! Awesome worthwhile cause and, yeah, do all the things next year!
