Twitter Party w/ @ChooseCherries and @ScritchfieldRD — Join and win PRIZES!

Posted on May 9, 2012 by rebeccascritchfield

I always tell my athlete clients “if you can’t fuel it, you can’t do it”. Fueling your workouts is a critical part of performing at your best. Whether you’re a marathon runner, or a casual runner, your body needs energy to keep it going the distance.

The Cherry Marketing Institute is sponsoring a special Twitter party on Tuesday, May 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET (watch video announcement) to talk about how proper fueling with antioxidant-rich (like cherries) before you workout can help prevent and manage post-exercise muscle pain and soreness. They’ll also talk about what foods are best for pre-fuel, post-fuel, and discuss proper hydration.

Studies have shown that cherries contain antioxidants called anthocyanins– which give cherries their bright RED color — and have anti-inflammatory properties that can help protect muscles and joints even before you lace up, making exercise recovery less painful.

On top of the anti-inflammatory benefits, they’re delicious! I love dried cherries in oatmeal before a workout, and frozen cherries and tart cherry juice are perfect in smoothies after a workout. You can find a ton of great-tasting recipes on their website, so check it out!

Best of all, you’ll have a chance to win awesome prizes. Who doesn’t love prizes?!  I hope to see you there!
