All About Hydration & The Indian Summer.
Its hot. It's cold. It's sunny. It's cloudy. It's snowing. It's 70 degrees out.
Come on Fall, get your act together. If you're having weather like we are in Boulder, it's confusing. First we're bundling up to get out for a run, next thing you know we're shedding layers and sweating like it's going out of style. With all this, we think it's time for a little refresher course on one of the most important pieces of sport nutrition: hydration
SHIVERING AND SWEATING.
When it's cold, it's easy to forget about hydration. But you're still sweating when you're body is fighting to stay warm, or so says Dr. Allen Lim, the brainiac founder of Skratch Labs. He's such a believer in hydrating that he's created the first ever warm hydration mix. It's the Apples & Cinnamon Skratch
(this will come in handy on the slopes in a few weeks, so look for a sample in your Feed Box). Dr. Lim knows what's up when it comes to winter hydration, so read up
SOAK YOUR CELLS IN ELECTROLYTES.
Remembering why and how awesome hydration can be for your body, is important. With Fall being all about longer rides, hikes, and enjoying the outdoors before winter takes over, we promise you will enjoy ever moment even more, with electrolytes flooding your system.

DRINK BEFORE YOU NEED TO DRINK.
Okay wait, what?! Drinking during your workout isn't enough? If you're like us, and you consume about a million cups of coffee a day, and then go to workout and realize you haven't had a single cup of water, maaaaaybe
you should reassess. We're not saying you need to cut back on that beautiful, black, caffeinated, coffee goodness, just add some bottles of water to your day. Better yet, drop in some low-calorie electrolyte tablets when you can. Vega Sport
all have great options.
That's all for now!
