Runners, you’ve heard the joke, right?
Seems like a lot of work for a free banana!
Maybe. But when it’s a Chiquita banana the reward is as sweet as the journey to get to it. Especially when that journey takes you through Walt Disney World? as part of a runDisney event.
Here are a few reasons bananas are worth running the World for:
- They are almost all carbohydrate. This means the energy from a banana is easily used for our bodies before and after a run.
- They are also super high in potassium, which you lose through sweating on those longer distances. You want to replenish that before any cramps can set it. Bananas will do that for you.
- They are also easy on the tummy if you have pre-race nerves, and their handy dandy natural wrap makes it portable as well.
- The best reason? They taste delish!
