Water Plus

As a jogger, I spend the entire winter looking forward to the warmer months.

No more running tights. No more gloves. No more headbands. No harsh winds pelting my cheeks. No more itchy feeling as the sweat emerges from my pores but finds no escape, my entire body being covered. No more cold toes. No more thick, itchy socks. No more, is that a shallow puddle, or a treacherous sheet of ice?

To summarize: running in the winter is the worst!

Except, actually, it’s not.

When you run in the winter, you begin feeling uncomfortable. As the endorphins kick in and your core temperature rises, however, things don’t get cozy exactly, but you achieve a fuzzy-brained sense of resignation that is the cousin of coziness. Then, when the run is over, you feel great. You drink some tea, take a nice hot bath, and think, Nature wanted me to stay inside today, but I said, “No thank you, sir! I shall not be contained!”

Running in the summer follows the opposite trajectory. You step outside and you think, Sure is a little muggy out here. But hey, what do you care, right? Hell, the whole point of going outside is to sweat a bit! And that’s just what you do! You get good and sweaty! In fact, you get good and sweaty about a block into a five-mile run. And then you keep sweating. And sweating. And sweating.

By the time you’re done, you’ve blown past the fuzzy-brained resignation-pretending-to-be-coziness. You’re dealing with full-on brain melt, and you might actually feel a little sick.

A hot cup of tea? Gross. A hot shower? Please God, no.

What you need, instead, are some electrolytes. That’s what these things provide.

You mix one of these into some water and they start to make you feel human again after a hot summer run. Or a game of pick-up basketball. Or a hike. Or a bike ride. Or a stroll. Or just a little too much time in the sun. (Or, let’s be honest, one of these would be nice to have the morning after a situation whose excesses involve inebriating substances beyond heat.)

In other words, 'tis the season for some extra hydration. So stock up. You won’t regret it.
