Yo run gang,
As runners, we drink a lot more fluid and consume more calories than those who are sedentary. That said, our risk of health problems due to taking in chemicals, pharmaceuticals and whatever other impurities there are in our food and water may also be greater. In addition, we suck in a lot more air that is filtered by our lungs than the average couch potato. I believe we need to keep this in mind and look to run away from busy roadways and dirty air and look for sources of healthy food and pure water, we need to be aware.
This may sound like a shameless plug but ... We have Absopure Water delivered and available at all the Running Fit stores and in our corporate office. I believe it's a healthy, inexpensive perk to offer our staff and customers. It's not sponsored water; we pay Absopure for it and are happy to support a Michigan based company that is also the 4th largest plastic recycler in the country (They recycle here in Dundee, MI). But yes, I admit, the water you drink at all the Running Fit events is pure water from Absopure, delivered to us at no charge from our sponsor! Thank you Absopure for your support of the running community!
Randy Step, an obsessed runner, headed to run a trail where the air is fresh and clean ... And yes, with my Fuel Belt on filled with pure water.
