Fuel Your Run as You Prepare for the RGJ Journal Jog
During the dog days of summer, hydration becomes a critical component to training. Reno offers mid to high 90-degree temperature throughout summer, which means you will most likely be running in hot weather. Running in intense heat and not being adequately hydrated before and during your run makes your body work harder just to keep you cool.
Gu is the official on-course nutrition of the Journal Jog and offers a variety of nutrition products for before, during and after your run.
