We Run Green: Do YOU?

Monday Feb 01 2010

By Lauren Selman | Bio

Do you want to get lean while staying green? Whether you're a runner, a competitive cyclist, a recreational yogi or a vacation skier, there might be a more sustainable way for you to exercise. 

Recently, I was inspired by LuluLemon’s blog posts considering not only what we wear on our bodies but also how we wear our clothing. The author of the blog, challenged herself to dress for both work and for working out with only two bottoms to choose from for the entire month. The message was clear: you can minimize your impact by altering your habits. In short, it got me thinking, well, how sustainable are we when we work out? 

 Hi, I’m Lauren Selman and starting today, February 1, 2010, Tracy Hepler of Your Daily Thread and I are challenging ourselves to train for the LA Marathon as sustainably as possible. From what we put on our feet to what we eat for breakfast, we are going to be reviewing, researching and reporting back to you on how to train and sustain the planet. 

We want to know, with all of the cute eco-outfits out there, what are the best sustainable apparel alternatives to wear while we sweat? What are the best organic bars and energy sources? Are there good green shoes that are performance-ready? What's the optimum way to hydrate without using water stations?  And with the Vancouver Olympics just a breath away, what are Olympians doing to care for the environment? 

For the next two months, we will sweat for sustainability to find out what we can do while we work out to do our part. Keep up with us here on Mondays for the latest from the training room. We Run Green. Do you?
