Great choice – there couldn’t be anything better to get really close to nature and explore the great outdoors. Being in and exploring the great outdoors is exhilarating. With any vacation you need to plan; camping vacations are no different but to say they should be more detailed. You wouldn’t want to arrive to find you’ve forgotten …. Oh no! The tent! Planning your trip should start with where you are going and what you are planning to do. When you and your family have decided this, a checklist can be prepared.

Whether you run 5 K’s, 10 K’s or marathons, sports nutrition plays an important part in your running plan. Listed below are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about nutrition and running.
Q: In order to stay properly hydrated, how much fluid or water do I need to drink?
A: Dehydration effects your health, your mental capabilities and your running performance so it’s really important to get enough fluids before, during, and after your run. At a minimum, you should be drinking 8 – 8 ounce glasses of water in a day.
But when exercising, especially in the heat, longer runs, or heavier exertion runs, the recommended amount is 16 ounces of fluid 2 hours before running and then more before you start. If you are on a longer run, bring fluid with you (I recommend the Fuel Belt Helium).
