Runners wanted for a research study
Steve Vitti, a graduate student at Springfield College, is recruiting male endurance running athletes
in order to examine effects of dietary nitrate supplementation on running performance and economy.
The only requirements for this study is that you have to have completed a 10k training run or race
within the last month and have a VO2 max of 45 ml/kg/min, which he will establish at the college.
A body composition analysis will be given as well, which estimates your body fat %, caloric requirements, etc.
Perfect for all of you data people out there!
