To run 35-40 miles a day

To run 35-40 miles a day, Hellah’s nutrition and recovery has to be on-point.

Here’s his essentials:

SUSTAIN: “I use SUSTAIN to keep me going during long runs, thanks to the electrolytes from coconut water.”

WHOLE: “For a nutritionally complete and simple breakfast, I make a smoothie using WHOLE: high in vitamins, minerals, protein, and essential fats!”

PERFORM: “Recovery is key: PERFORM after my workout is exactly what my body needs to get ready for my next run, with 25 grams of protein and BCAA’s.”

CREATINE: “I use creatine every day as it helps improve my total work capacity, and aids in recovery.”

“The beauty of running is for its accessibility: you don’t need an expensive gym membership to do it, and it’s open to people from all walks of life.”

Hellah will be using his run to raise money for Soles4souls, a top-rated non-profit charity in the USA.

Repurposing used goods, keeping them out of landfills and causing unnecessary waste.
