Rob Krar To Be Featured Speaker At Next VDOT Coaching Clinic

We’re excited to announce that ultrarunning superstar Rob Krar will be our featured guest speaker at the next VDOT O2 Coaching Clinic at GU Energy Labs in Berkley, CA on August 8th.

Coaches will have an opportunity to learn about Rob’s unique experience as a competitive triathlete, Division I middle distance runner and rise to the top of the ultrarunning world.

In 2013 and 2014, Rob was named Ultra Runner of the Year by UltraRunning Magazine. Last year he pulled off an incredible feat winning the top 100 mile races at Western States, Leadville and Run Rabbit Run. He’s also competed in the World Championships for Canada as a triathlete. If you’re not impressed by his athletic range, while at Butler University he ran 1:51 in the 800m and 3:44 for 1500m.

Stuff We Dig: Peanut Butter GU!

PB

We started a new board on our fabulous but young Pinterest page called “Stuff We Dig.” So far we’ve got Daniels’ Running Formula (obviously), The GRID foam roller, and a new sports nutrition bar from our good friends at Picky Bars.

Today we bring you another great product – Peanut Butter GU, a favorite of Run SMART coach Alicia Shay’s. “It sounds kind of strange but it is a little saltier than most gels and tastes good enough that I actually look forward to taking a gel,” says Alicia.

Look for Peanut Butter GU Energy Gel or request this flavor at your local specialty running store.
