Because of Reliv: I Run Marathons

Denise Curry,
Scarborough, Maine

I took up running 10 years ago to help a friend who needed a running buddy. My son did his first 5K at the age of 8 and completed it in only 24 minutes! He challenged me to step it up, so I gave Reliv’s 24K™ and Innergize!® a shot. I take some before my races and then put a few 24K bottles in my pockets. It helps keep me focused on the task at hand and gives me a boost of energy during my race. It pushes me through the moments when I feel like slowing down. I stay focused on my goal! The Boston Marathon this year will be my 6th full marathon!

Update: Denise and her son both safely finished the 2013 Boston Marathon.

My Story: Gary Allen

Name: Gary Allen
Hometown: Great Cranberry Island, ME
Gigs: Reliv, race director, motivational speaker, runner
Reliv Regimen: Reliv Now, Innergize!, ProVantage and 24K

Mile After Mile: I ran from Maine to Washington DC in January to support the Wounded Warrior Project and American Cancer Society. I’ve got more than 100,000 lifetime miles under my belt including 20 Boston Marathons and 14 NYC Marathons.
Integrating Nutrition: I started taking Reliv a few months ago, and have been amazed at the active energy boost I get! Guys my age do take notice when something we’ve been doing all our lives suddenly feels easier. Bouncy is how I’d describe it!
Overcoming the Wall: As distance runners know, the wall is a point where our bodies say ‘enough’ due to mental and physical factors. Reliv is helping to limit the physical part and keep me going.

My Story: Kelly May

Healthy for the Long Run
Kelly May of Henderson, Nevada, ran 26.2 miles in this year’s Rock ‘n Roll San Diego Marathon. Below the race number pinned on the front of her shirt she printed two words: ‘I Reliv.’ “I did that because although I had never been a runner before, I knew the Reliv products would help get me through the marathon,” says Kelly.

Athlete Reaches New Heights

Key Director Robin Lane Allsoppof Basking Ridge, NJ, discovered Relìv five years ago. An athlete most of her life, Robin was astounded by the results she experienced on the Relìv products.

At 25, Robin tried to compete in a marathon and injured her knee. The pain was slowing her down… until she discovered Relìv.

“I started with Relìv Classic®, Innergize!® and FibRestore®. When I added ProVantage®, I noticed an improvement in my endurance, stamina and recovery time,” she explains. “In fact, I was able to increase my mileage with Relìv!”

When Robin first heard about Team Relìv at the 2010 National Conference, she ran behind the stage to thank the Relìv staff. Her first Team Relìv event, the Our House Five Miler, generated 80 leads!

“And having to log my mileage for the Team Relìv Running Club was a great motivator for me. I started running races again,” Robin says. She started biking and swimming again too.

In July 2010, Robin competed in her very first triathlon. “I had an amazing sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. I realized that my body could be strong! I felt so great afterwards and I know it is because of these products,” she says. “If it wasn’t for Relìv, I would not have accomplished this!”

Reliv Boosts Performance

Susan Spiegel Master Affiliate Susan Spiegel of Gas City, IN, has been taking Reliv essential nutrition for years to stay healthy. But after adding Reliv’s sports performance products to her nutrition regimen, she discovered what Reliv could do for her running performance.

Susan was surprised by how quickly her muscles recovered after a long run. “It just blows my mind that I can run a long distance and not be sore afterward. In fact, now I can even do an afternoon of yard work after a run,” says Susan, who has run an annual half-marathon for the past 15 years. “After adding ProVantage® and Innergize!® to my training regimen three years ago, I ran my best time ever!”

“I love Innergize! There is just nothing like it. I drink it throughout my races instead of the beverages that are provided. It keeps me fully hydrated even on the hottest days,” she explains.

Susan plans to continue her athletic and healthy lifestyle for years to come. “Veteran runners have warned me that eventually my knees and joints will give out on me,” she says. “But I just tell them, ‘I’ve got something for that too!’ and then let them know about Arthaffect®.”

At her annual half-marathon in October, Susan dropped four minutes from her previous year’s time, finishing fifth in her division of 283. She says, “I felt so good afterward — strong, no joint pain and amazing muscle strength and recovery! Without Reliv, I know I couldn’t be the athlete that I am today!”
