Fun factoid

Did you know.... chocolate milk is becoming a favorite post workout drink among serious athletes. The combination of protein and carbs helps speed muscle recovery and gives the athlete some quick energy.

it's one of my favorite choices ... ahem ... without the workouts, that is.

As long as you are wearing exercise clothes when you drink it, I think it makes you look like an athlete. Seriously, though, years ago "they" used to say that runners should avoid dairy products, but these days they offer chocolate milk as a post-marathon choice, along with fresh fruit and so on. Can't wait until they start offering beer and pizza as a post workout treat. I'll definitely take up marathoning then.
