Runner’s World has an article about how to select the correct energy bar to coordinate with your runs.
An excerpt from the article reads, “Energy bars are one of your favorite snacks for good reasons: They’re tasty, convenient, and relatively healthy. But with hundreds of brands and flavors to choose from, which is best? That depends. “You need to consider when you plan to eat the bar,” says Tara Gidus, M.S., R.D., an Orlando-based sports dietitian. Before a run, for example, you want the right amount and type of carbs for an energy boost–without a trip to a porta potty. Afterward, you need more protein.”

“I often hear someone say I’m not a real runner. We are all runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner.” – Bart Yasso
Now that it is flip-flop season, we have a few tips on how to keep the calluses at bay and your tootsies looking nice (even while running Cooper River Bridge)!
- Wear the right size shoe

The Cooper River Bridge Run, along with Wonder Works and Momentum Marketing, was recognized at the Charleston County School District Board Meeting on May 13, 2013 to honor the great success of the 2013 Kids Run & Wonderfest.
Dave Spurlock, CCSD Director of Physical Education and Health, took the podium to recognize the event’s many accomplishments. He asked CRBR Director Julian Smith, Wonder Works owner Christine Osborne, Momentum Marketing Agency Principal Pam Hartley and Kevin Adcock to stand and receive a round of applause from the board and attendees.
The Kids Run & Wonderfest drew a record-breaking 8,000 people for a day of health, fun and fitness at Hampton Park on April 5, 2013. Mayor Joe Riley took the stage that day and declared the day of the Kids Run & Wonderfest for 2013 and beyond “Fitness is Fun Day” in honor of the event’s health driven initiatives.
To start you off for the week, we would like to share a very useful running tip for beginners!
TAKE DEEP BREATHS – through you nose AND you mouth!
Some new runners assume they should breathe in only through their nose. You actually want to breathe in through your nose and mouth to make sure you’re getting enough oxygen to your muscles while running. Take deep breathes through your diaphragm (expanding your belly). It can help prevent side stiches, which are a common issue for new runners.
