My husband took off work today to study and prepare for teaching Wednesday nights service, so I was able to sleep in a little this morning and then go for a run. I ran 8 miles on the hilly course near our house. It was tough today and I even had to stop and walk a few of the uphills. I don't know if it was because I'm not used to running that time of morning or what exactly it was. I also went to my favorite grocery store in Tulsa called Wild Oats Whole Foods Market. I love this store! I went to get the usual, but decided to stop over in the drink area to see if they sold sports drinks. I found this all natural product called Vita Coco. It sounds fantastic and "has more potassium than 2 bananas" in one serving. I had not heard of the use of coconut for hydration until someone mentioned it on Kim's blog. Apparently Fresh coconut water is loaded with electrolytes, making it a great drink for athletes and just about everyone. The sugars in the drink are natural and not the processed type, so I don't think it will give me headaches that sweeteners and sugars do. I bought two different flavors. I can't wait to try it! I also found a similar drink while looking called Zico but thought I would try the Vita Coco first.
