Well, what do you know? I have another bib to giveaway for the Giant Race Half Marathon!
The got milk? campaign will be in San Francisco this weekend promoting their Refuel with Chocolate Milk event, where they be talking about the importance of post-exercise recovery. They were also kind enough to give me a bib into the Giants Race this Saturday, August 27th!
I personally don't drink milk, but I DO drink chocolate soymilk after long runs and races. A few of my friends, however, drink chocolate milk and they say the sugars and proteins help their muscles tremendously. The Refuel with Chocolate Milk campaign says something similar:
"Lowfat chocolate milk naturally has many of the nutrients most commercial recovery drinks have to add in the lab – including high-quality protein and key electrolytes like calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium."
Refuel with Chocolate Milk is traveling around the country, stopping at marathons, triathlons, soccer camps, and the like, setting up "Fuel Zones" to help athletes with their recoveries. They will be at the Giants Race this weekend handing out samples, manning a photo booth, giving out free massages, and distributing materials on post-exercise recovery. You can learn more about their campaign by visiting their website, Facebook, or Twitter, or just stop by their booth from 6am to 2pm this weekend!
Because the race is just a few days away, this giveaway is only going to be a 24-hour giveaway. Let's hope you're trained & ready to go!
Here's what you have to do:
1. Leave me a comment telling me what you do to recover from hard workouts!
THAT'S IT! Feel free to spread the word via Twitter or your blogs... I may have extra entries for people who share the love. :)
I will be contacting the winner tomorrow night, so don't delay! GOOD LUCK & have a great race!
