I had hoped to get some time to write while we were away these last 3 weeks. I think this the longest that I've ever been away from home, and we had a great trip. However, I just couldn't seem to fit in writing. We were really just too busy working on projects.
I've lived in Pennsylvania for almost 8 years now, and I know that I have acclimated to the climate here. I was not prepared for the heat and humidity in Mississippi and Texas.
My morning runs were less than stellar. In fact, I had barely made it a quarter of a mile some days when I felt the need to walk. I had 30 minutes to get in a workout before our day began (due to sunrise). So my workouts were usually shorter than normal.
As we were doing outside work in Texas, I knew the importance of hydration and keeping my electrolytes balanced. I'm not a fan of sports drinks. First of all, I really don't like the taste. Second, have you read the ingredients? I can't pronounce most of them. But by the 3rd or 4th day of working outside, my legs had started cramping ... and I mean bad. I knew it was past time for something other than water. Because it was all that I had at the time, I turned to a traditional sports drink. I encourage you not to underestimate the importance of electrolytes, but I believe you should also know what you are putting into your body - including chemicals in sports drinks.
And I believe I may have found a healthy alternative to traditional sports drinks. It's called WTRMLN WTR
