Olympic Training Smoothie!

One of the most over-looked aspects of improving your running is nutrition. Sometimes we focus so much on getting another run in or amping up our speed during a track workout, that we forget to pay close attention to the way we are fueling our bodies. Proper nutrition is key to achieve your greatest potential in running.

Nutrition is key to obtaining Lauren's envy-worth abs!

No one knows that better than Lauren Fleshman, former U.S. champion in the 5,000 meters, five-time NCAA champion and 2:37 marathon runner.

We’re excited to share Lauren’s favorite smoothie recipe!
