3 Things You Shouldn’t Skimp on Nutrition-Wise

As a Girl on the Run, nutrition is super important for you. You have to make sure you’re eating enough healthy calories to fuel all that running!

In a nutshell, you need to make sure you are getting enough:

1) protein – protein is what your body uses to repair itself, so you need protein to help keep your muscles strong and happy

2) carbohydrates to fuel your runs (and your brain!)

3) vitamins and minerals – from real food, not from your Fred Flintstone multivitamin
