encourages you to be an energized runner by providing you with the best food choices for runners.
A word from Pearle… Whether you are a seasoned runner or just beginning, what you eat can have a huge impact on how you feel, how much energy you have, and how the run impacts your fitness level. Follow my simple guidelines to fuel your runs. These guidelines are adapted from the current research on runners’ nutrition needs. I encourage you to adapt the options to suit your diet, beliefs, and lifestyle.
