Challenge #3: Hydrate!

Simple, but it's a challenge for me!

Fresh-You Challenge #3: HYDRATE!

Healthy Hydration!


(Challenge #1 was taking fresh garlic, which I'm still enjoying!
and Challenge #2 was running daily)

Boston Marathon is approaching, so what I can do, aside from running, to make my race experience a peak performance!?

Two things come to mind:
a) SLEEP, and
b) HYDRATION!

For the next month, (to the race and beyond!), I am going to focus on drinking more!

8 c ~ 64oz fluid per day
How?

WRITE on my Do It Now (Most Important Things) list each day!
DRINK small cups to maximize absorption!
ADD CHIA to any drink will also increase absorption!

Why?

My Favorite Benefits

Did you run the marathon in Boston? Are you okay?

Colleen Grossner said...

Kurt, I did, and I am ok! Thank you for asking :) I wrote a post about it too. http://fresh-you.blogspot.com/2013/04/boston-marathon-heartbreak-like-none.html

Did you run, Kurt?

I'm glad you're home safe with your family! Thanks for posting that uplifting message about the Boston tragedy. I'm just starting up running this week. It usually just ends up being a warm-weather exercise for me, but I love it and I'm a much more positive person when I'm running regularly!

Take Care,

Kurt

Berries are one of the ideal summer foods that help to make you stay hydrated. They contain 90% of water and you can relish strawberries as desserts, juices, fondues or raw. Nutrition and Hydration Week 2014
