NEW CASTLE —
Did you know you could make your own sports drink at home using only four ingredients?
I didn't, until I watched the following video on the Runner's World website. After clicking the link, choose the video on the right titled, "Make Your Own Fuel."
The process explained in the video is simple and it takes less than five minutes to complete.
To make your own sports drink, first fill a glass with 16 ounces of water. Then, add two tablespoons of honey and 1/8 teaspoon of table salt. Squeeze in lemon or lime juice and stir.
The video also includes food suggestions for mid-run refueling. If you like to run, you may find the beginning of the video helpful. If not, just skip to the 2:15 mark.
I find the Runner's World website to be a great source of information for not only runners, but for anyone who exercises regularly. Visit the site at http://www.runnersworld.com/.
