As Reinertsen gears up for her first Ironman in seven years and in her hometown of New York City on August 13, she understands the importance of taking care of your body and recovering properly. She refuels with lowfat chocolate milk after her tough training workouts so she's able to rebound effectively for her next bout of training. Lowfat chocolate milk is simple, effective and scientifically shown to help refuel the body so athletes can perform at their best during their next workout.

Reinertsen's new ad copy reads: "After a hard run, I'm exhilarated. That's when I refuel with lowfat chocolate milk for protein to build lean muscle and to replenish electrolytes. Some call it "runner's high" - I call it "my After."
