I’ve been running for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until recently that I started to think of myself as a runner.
Working in the corporate world, sitting at a desk all day, I started to really look forward to my after-work runs. Most days I would get home, grab my shoes, and head out to log some miles along the Schuylkill River Trail, which is by my home in Philadelphia. Some days I would run alone, some days with friends.
As I started running more, I started thinking more about running nutrition. I was always hungry before my runs, but I didn’t know what I should eat. I always heard that you shouldn’t eat before runs, but when I started to do research, I found that the opposite is true:
You most definitely should eat before a run.
The problem was, I didn’t know what to eat, and I certainly didn’t want something that would upset my stomach or weigh me down. I thought a nice nutrition bar might work, but when I went to the grocery store, I saw lots of bars for body-builders, and climbers, and paleo-enthusiasts, but nothing for runners.
That’s when I decided to make my own.
It wasn’t easy. I spent a lot of time with nutritionists and local runners, testing and re-testing different formulations with different ingredients. After about six months of R&D, we finally came up with a product that not only tasted great but could be eaten right before a run without feeling heavy or upsetting your stomach:
A nutrition bar made just for runners, by runners.
Trishmoves is running nutrition made simple. No gimmicks, no clever names, just functional nutrition designed to get you through your run.
Yeah, yeah...that's great and all, but who's Trish?
Trish is my mom. And she's always on the move. When I started Trishmoves, I knew I was going to need a lot of help. I figured if I named the company after my mom then she would have to help me. It worked:) Plus she gets a kick out of telling people she's Trish when she sees the bar out in the world.
It's the little things.
