Four-time Olympian Hunter Kemper joins Cigna again to help runDisney fans be the best athletes they can be.
Winning a gold medal at the Olympic Games has been a dream of mine ever since I was eight years old. When I was a kid, I wore a hat that read, "Goin' for Gold!" In 1995, it was announced that triathlon was going to appear for the first time in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. It was at this time that I knew my Olympic dream could become reality.
It was an event I'd been eagerly anticipating for six straight months, but the Olympic trials in San Diego, California, didn't exactly start off the way I had imagined. I came out of the water in twentieth position in a 75-person field, I finished the bike portion of the race in fifteenth position, and now it was on to the run.
As a runner, your diet is important not only for maintaining good health, but also for promoting peak performance. And while your training plan should be top of mind, what you eat prior to and during your big race is equally as important. Here are some nutritional tips to remember when it comes to your diet before and on race day.
Cigna and Achilles International share a similar mission: to help people with disabilities be the best they can be, in all aspects of their lives. Our relationship has grown to sponsor the Achilles Kids program and Freedom Team athletes. Now, we established the Achilles Cigna Customer Referral program for Cigna's long term disability customer.
