Journey of the Rhode Runner

I am Paul, a Rhode Islander who is going to run a 5k and raise money for a charity in all 50 states. Come join me on my journey. I will talk about races and charities, as well as talk about life in Rhode Island. There will also be interviews with race directors, charities, other people in the health and fitness community, as well as local Rhode Island businesses.

Journey of the Rhode Runner welcomes everybody's favorite real food dietitian, Serena Marie R.D!

- Meal plans - yes there are also vegetarian, gluten free, and dairy free options 
- Week 1 is a general nutrition week, which includes understanding the labels. This will come in useful whether you are a runner or not.
- Weeks 2-3 include pre and mid workout nutrition and hydration
- Week 4 includes post workout and intuitive eating
- The program consists of weekly group calls, guides, a Facebook community, as well as access to Serena for nutritional questions

If enough people are going where we can rent a bus, I will let you know. And I will also look for accommodations.

Also, I would like to mention that you don't need to run/walk to go on this trip. You can go to cheer on Team Rhode Runner, and enjoy the incredible festivities. You can also bring family members.
