Nutrition Tip of the Week!

No matter how hard you have been training or how many miles you have logged, you will have a hard time performing well on race day if your health isn't 100%. As the weather starts to change, this is one of the most important times to boost your immune system. Leading an active lifestyle is a great start, as sedentary people have less effective immune systems, but you also need to start incorporating more antioxidants (like Vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, and zinc) into your diet. Vitamin C helps repair injuries, as well as improve the function of the immune system. For specific foods to eat for your daily dose of the vitamins, or if you want to know more details about how each vitamin works in your body, visit the websites below.
