A Berry Berry Beet Smoothie

Berries... Beets... Battlestar Galactica.

... We mean smoothies! Our latest berrylicious smoothie recipe uses Blueberry Tangerine Immunity for the base to get the benefits of its immune-system-boosting mix of botanicals. Add in Greek yogurt for a powerful protein punch. And the folate-rich beets help round out the nutrition profile and give this smoothie it's beautiful red color!

Nuuntini Testing: Arnold Palmer

Nothing says summer like an ice-cold lemonade or refreshing iced tea. So,we’re combining the two (Nuun style) for a wicked summer Nuuntini.

The classic Arnold Palmer is a delicious blend of lemonade and iced tea. Ours is prepared “adult style” with a dash of hydration! The Ginger Lemonade Nuun tab brings a sweet citrus finish to this sunshine refreshment. We love the combination with a dark iced black tea and some delicious sweet tea vodka by Firefly Spirits. (What up South Carolina!?)

​Taking the Leap to Trail Running

​Taking the leap over to trail running: tips from a trialed trail runner!

As a lifelong road-runner, the transition to the trail running seemed relatively straightforward. Less traffic. more vertical. Good to go! Fast forward 3 weeks into my debut to the trails, and a severely sprained ankle proved me otherwise. Biggest lesson learned: the sport of trail running is drastically different from hitting the pavement.

So, what did I do? I recovered from my humbling injury and got trail smart. With a few easy adjustments, I made a much smoother transition to #traillife and enjoyed the very best of what trail running has to offer!

3 Things I learned Training For A Half

For the last 10 years, I’ve ridden bicycles thousands of miles from mountain biking to road racing to cyclocross. I’m not the best or fastest, but I love cycling for the fun and the fitness that comes with it. Over the last 10 years, I’ve also run a total of about 20 miles.

Twelve weeks before my first half-marathon, I wouldn’t have considered myself a “runner”. (For those cyclists who aren’t familiar, running is what you do when you get a flat tyre at the Tour de France.) I thought that committing to a 12-week training plan would be a good challenge. Even if, at the time, the thought of running 6, 8, 10 or more miles was daunting and 13.1 miles seemed impossible. Then the running started and I learned that running is awesome.
