It’s the final day of the BibRave Pro Stocking Stuffer Week (sponsored by Zensah). It’s a Chocolate Milk day today – as chosen by BibRave Pro Melissa (you can follow her blog here).
I don’t recommend chucking some Chocolate Milk down your stocking, for it would make some absolutely soaking wet gifts – however perhaps think about it for a post-run Christmas drink, or to leave for poor Santa and give him some nourishment mid-pressie run!
With so many post-run drinks out there, it is super easy to overlook something so simple as Chocolate Milk, however I know whenever I do a long run – it’s the first thing that I crave. There is also some awesome science behind the theory that Chocolate Milk is good for you (the low fat variety mind you..). From the Team Chocolate Milk website:
- (Low fat) Chocolate Milk is a natural source of high-quality protein
- contains the right mix of protein and carbs scientifically shown to refuel exhausted muscles and help return to peak potential
- provides fluids and electrolytes – such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium – to rehydrate and help replenish all of those critical nutrients lost in sweat
- PLUS IT TASTES AMAZING!! (Ok, not science but it’s the truth!!)
I recommend a visit to the Team Chocolate Milk website if you interested in the complete rundown behind it – there is a ton of information on the benefits of drinking Chocolate Milk post-exercise.
That’s it for the BibRave Pro Stocking Stuffer ideas! With 5 days left until the Running Santa makes his house calls, I hope you have your wishlist finalised. I know I’ve got a couple of things from this week’s BibRave list added! Enjoy the remaining days before the holidays and hope you all get your training runs in!
Of course, don’t forget to join the BibChat conversation every Tuesday at 8P CT (Wednesday for Aussies – check the timezones). It’s a great way to connect with runners around the world! Hope to see you all there!!
