We’ve compiled a list of all our running essentials — favorite gear, recovery tools, books on running, + possibly the most important category… FUEL! We’re getting you geared up to rock your runs this summer during CHAARG 5K ; ).

Fuel For Your Runs

There’s so much to talk about when it comes to fueling before, during, + after runs, so we can’t wait to have Lydia Nader [a sports nutritionist!] as a member of CHAARG Run Club to answer all of your nutrition + running questions. Below are a few of her blog posts on fueling that we’re sure you will find helpful:
