For Runners by Runners
News from RUNOHIO, January 2019
The staff of RUNOHIO wishes you and your family a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!
 
When you are making your New Year' Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race.  If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training. Also, help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2019 will be a Great Year!
 
Hopefully, this winter you will be able to continue your running.
 
Have a Great New Year!!

Athletes Kitchen - by Nancy Clark
Runners have many questions about energy bars:
Q. Which ones are best?
A. That depends on your taste buds. The best energy bars are the ones you enjoy eating, settle well for a pre-exercise energy booster, and fulfill your dietary needs
