I first read about gotchocolatemilk.com on Megan's blog - she had a Team Refuel logo on her site and it immediately sparked my curiosity.
I love chocolate milk - it's my favorite post race fuel (review my favorite fuels here) so I didn't need any further convincing but this website shared a lot of information about the science behind drinking chocolate milk to recover after a workout. They are official sponsors of the Rock 'n Roll Marathon Series, the Ironman series, and several other great races. Then I went on to read that gotchocolatemilk.com sponsors atheletes in Team Refuel!
Each month two athletes are selected to represent Team Refuel - applicants submit a 60 second video describing how chocolate milk is part of their "after" - or post exercise refueling. The rewards for being chosen to be on Team Refuel were numerous - just enough that I couldn't pass it up!
So I applied!!!
I'm currently waiting to find out if I'm a finalist and if selected, my video will be posted on their website for the public to choose their favorite two! I am excited and nervous and know that even if I don't get selected, trying something new and moving away from my comfort zone were well worth my efforts!
So stay tuned and get ready to vote if I'm selected as a finalist!
QOTD: Do you prefer pre-mixed chocolate milk or do you like to make your own?
Me, I like to make my own with skim milk and Hershey's syrup - YUM!
