Food for Fuel

Reblog post for those participating in the UC Davis Heroes Run 2013. On Saturday, October 26, 2013, we will be hosting the first ever UC Davis Heroes Run, which we plan on hosting annually thereafter, in collaboration with Campus Police and Fire Department. Our purpose in hosting this run is to establish an educational fund for future in need students. Thus, proceeds from the event will benefit UC Davis students through the ASUCD Endowment Fund. This run will be a fun 5K and 100M run for adults and children to celebrate the every day heroes (i.e. teachers, doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters, etc.) as well as their beloved super heroes while enjoying themselves at the same time.

At the end of the race, there will be a Valhalla Gala where participants will be able to relax with live music and nutritious food! All sidekicks (children ages 5 and under) will be given participatory ribbons.

Register today at heroesrun.ucdavis.edu! All participants are encouraged to show up in costume. Which hero will you attend the race as?

As I hear Shaun T yelling at me to “dig deeeeeeper”, my arms feel like they’re going to give out. Why is it so hard for me to do a sit up? Have my legs always been this heavy?

If you’re like me, sometimes we overlook the importance of fueling our brains and bodies before exercising. We jump from one activity to the next…
