The Green Resolution

Hydration is a key factor in an athlete's performance and recovery. Most athletes bring a plastic bottle of water with them to the workout. Unfortunately, more often than not due to time constraints and pressing responsibilities, most speed away from the workout and leave their 16oz plastic hydration behind. Three days later one of the coaches empties the bottle and contributes the empty receptacle to the dumpster. How about we make a conscience effort in 2008 to help 1.)Keep our facility clean 2.) Conserve some resources by employing a reusable water bottle?

If you are interested in purchasing a durable, high-quality water bottle, check out the Nalgene website. Great products, very earth friendly.

For those of us who are hurrying to workout and have to purchase a water bottle, educate yourself on the recycleability of the container you are purchasing. Not all plastic is created equal and it is graded according to its quality. Check the number and be sure to dispose of it properly.

We workout within view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. I dare say there is not another CF location with such a glorious setting. Let's do our part to be hydrated AND be thoughtful.
