Where do you get your healthy food inspiration? Recently was introduced to Raley's, a fresh grocery store chain located in California. They take the time to provide endless inspiration for their customers on overall health and wellness, no matter what health and dietary plan you follow. They are a proud sponsor of the Napa Valley Marathon in March.
Everyone knows that weight loss success is 90% due to nutrition and only 10% exercise. We all know it,but we don’t necessarily practice it! Nutrition is also obviously key when it comes to race preparation. Even after being a distance runner for over 20 years, I still struggle with the discipline of eating smart for race day and recovery.
Raley’s knows a thing or two about helping runners with race and recovery nutrition. They are a sponsor of the Napa Valley Marathon and provide some of the food at the finish line.
Nutrition strategist, Yvette Waters MS, RDN, CISSN of Raley's Nob Hill Foods created a helpful guide for runners. She explains how to prep for your race with good nutrition during training, the week before you race, and after your event..
My next half marathon is just 6 weeks away. I am committed to doing a better job fueling in the weeks leading up to the race, especially the week before. My next race is actually in Napa, where there is a Raley's. So you’d better believe I’m going to stop there when I get in town and load up on pre-race fuel and recovery!
Read the full article here. It’s super helpful, even if you don’t have a Raley’s near you!
