WASHINGTON D.C., (November 9, 2017) – Three-time Triathlon World Champion Mirinda ‘Rinny’ Carfrae heads to Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas weekend November 11-12, to make her first official return to running after giving birth to her daughter in August.
In addition to participating in the 5K at 6 PM on Saturday evening, Carfrae will join BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK™ at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas expo at 2 PM on Saturday for a Meet & Greet with fans. On Sunday evening, she’ll be handing out lowfat chocolate milk at the marathon finish line to help runners recover from their race down the Strip.
As a new mom and champion triathlete, Carfrae understands the importance of recovery. Through years of intense training, she’s relied on the high-quality protein and nutrients in lowfat chocolate milk to help her refuel after tough workouts and races. And now, as she gets back into her fitness regimen after the birth of her daughter, proper recovery is as important as ever.
“I’m excited to join Rock ‘n’ Roll athletes in Las Vegas to run the 5K and officially kick-start my training as I gear up for a big 2018,” said Carfrae. “I’ll also be camped out at the finish line of the half and full marathon, handing out chocolate milk to give runners a taste of how I recover!”
More than 20 scientific studies support the benefits of recovering with the high-quality protein and nutrients in lowfat chocolate milk. To rehydrate and replenish the critical nutrients lost in sweat, everyone from elite athletes, to Division-1 coaches, to serious exercisers trust real chocolate milk to rebound after a hard workout, game, or race.
