Potatoes USA “Power Up” Putrajaya Night Marathon 2018

Did you know that with just 110 calories, one medium, skin-on potato provides 30% of your daily value of vitamin C and more potassium than a banana?

Potatoes are one of Mother Nature’s best-kept secrets. This vegetable not only tastes good, but it is also good for you. Potatoes USA has been part of a nutritious diet and meal regime for many households, chefs and restaurants - serving up many tasty menu creations using U.S Potatoes.

In the USA, potatoes have been used as a high energy good carb for the athletes to fuel up for their competitive sports like the marathon and triathlon.
Now, this potatoes goodness is experienced by our local Malaysian marathon runners at the Putrajaya Night Marathon, held on 27 October 2018 in Dataran Putrajaya.

A booth was set up at the near the starting line to promote the goodness of Potatoes USA to the runners.

Nutrition Today journal indicates high-quality carbohydrates and physical performance suggests that balanced diets high in natural, carbohydrate-rich foods like nutrient-dense potatoes, may be optimal for improving performance among elite endurance athletes.

Numerous studies conducted over the past 40-50 years also suggested that carbohydrates are a primary macronutrient for sustaining and improving athletic performance.

Here are some of the reasons why runners like you should include potatoes in your diet while going for the PR in your marathon.

26 grams of carbohydrate: Count on the quality carbs in potatoes for optimal mental and physical performance. Plus, potatoes contain as much if not more of several essential vitamins and minerals than spaghetti, brown rice or whole wheat bread (compared on a per-serving basis).

620 Milligrams of Potassium: With more potassium than a medium-size banana, potatoes are perfect for aiding muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function during long endurance events.

110 Calories for Energy: Easily digestible and more energy dense than any other popular vegetable, potatoes are a good choice to fuel the demands of racing a triathlon.

Potatoes also have one of the highest overall antioxidant activity among vegetables.

So, fuel up for your next marathon with Potatoes USA. Enjoy it using the healthier ways of cooking like baking, boiling and air-frying instead of deep-frying.

Anlene #wearemore powered by Viper Challenge @ Oval, One Utama 9-11 November 2018

Love a challenge? A fan of obstacle races? Put your strength, agility and speed to test at the Anlene #wearemore powered by Viper Challenge, happening now at the Oval, One Utama Shopping Mall for a limited time.

Anlene Malaysia has joined forces with Viper Challenge, Asia’s largest obstacle course running event to encourage Malaysians to keep challenging their bones, joints and muscles. They have put together five Viper Challenge obstacles, especially for you!

We had the privilege to do a test run on the obstacles on Friday morning. Here a little review of obstacles.

Obstacle #1 - The Suspended Balance Beam

You have to walk from one end of the suspended beam to the other without falling. Simple? It's not as easy as it seems. The beam will rock back and forth AND side to side when you step on it. The trick is to do it very fast before the beam realise you are on it. Heheh!

Obstacle #2 - The Heavy Duty

The challenge got its name from the heavy-duty tyres utilised. The simplest of all the obstacle. You just have to crawl your way through one of the three tyres.

Obstacle #3 - The Diamond Cube

The most intimidating obstacle. You have to work your way up from the bottom of the Diamond Cube and then down again by climbing on the net. It's one floor high, probably more than 5 meters in height. Keep your chest as close as possible to the net and work yourself over the cube.

Obstacle #4 - The Tire Trouble

A variation of the monkey bar where you have to swing from one end of the obstacle to the other using your upper body strength. Like the name suggests you get tired very easily doing this. LOL!

Obstacle #5 - The Rubber Burn

This one is quite fun where you try to squeeze yourself three times through two row of heavy tires before you get to ring a bell at the finish. There is no other way to do it other than forcing your way through!

Time is your goal in this event as they are giving out attractive prizes EACH DAY from 9 to 11 November to the Top 5 participants who complete the 5 obstacle course within the shortest time!

Don't miss out on this chance to conquer the Viper Challenge obstacles and win cash prizes and some cool merchandise vouchers worth RM20,000!
