San Diego Running Institute (Giveaway!!!)



For those lucky enough to live in Southern California, you know how huge the running community is here!  There are tons of groups for runners to join and stores that cater to runners needs.  One organization is the San Diego Running Institute.  SDRI is owned by Dr. Runco, who is a U.S. Navy and Gulf War Veteran, who is a Doctor of Chiropractic here in San Diego.  He also happens to be a phenomenal endurance athlete - he's completed six 50 mile ultramarathons and 14 marathons in 14 states.  He is currently training for the Quad Cities Marathon, Columbia River Gorge Marathon and the Valley of the Presidents 12 Hour Race.  In addition to the owner, the store is staffed by some amazing runners who are passionate about what they do: Paul Jesse, Dr. Dean Silvestre, Heather, and Emily!  
<------- Paul Jesse (who generously offered to sponsor our giveaway!)



Now I cannot mention SDRI without mentioning their official shop dog, Rio!  He's a huge fan of running and loves to socialize with the customers (he even helps them pick out shoes!).    


SDRI focuses on what runners actually NEED to perform, vice trying to sell them fancy gadgets that will make them look cool!  Their website has a wealth of information, so make sure you check it out!

Now on to the giveaway...which is why you are really reading this!!!  Paul Jesse, who helped organize the
Dirt Devil Racing Series, has offered to give away an SDRI visor and a box of Nuun!  In order to enter, do any of the following things:

I lived in SD county for two years and just moved away. SDRI really helped me with an IT band problem last summer. Not only did they get me in the right shoes, they also taught me some stretches and exercises to help heal it. A year and a half later, still no problems!
Thanks for the help!

I love Nuun because it makes drinking water a little more fun and I feel it really helps with hydration.

I love Nuun because it's not too sweet! I can take sips and not feel inclined to keep drinking- quenches my thirst and I can keep going. Super bonus- doesn't upset my stomach! I have tried many sports drinks and Nuun is one of the only ones I can drink while running,

P/S I love SDRI and love Dr. Runco's practice. Dr. Allen made my PF go away!!

Following! I've never tried Nuun, where do I find it?

Nuun is an electrolyte enhanced drink tablet. You just drop it into your water bottle and you have a good source of electrolytes to keep you balanced! It's no super sweet like some sports drinks.

I would tell you why I love Nuun if I had tried it, but I haven't yet. Here's to hoping it lives up to all of the hype!

Honestly I've never tried Nuun. I have some en route to my house as we speak but if half of what I hear is true then it must be pretty amazing!
