Batch Store Dispatch: Nashville Marathon Essentials

We’re just two days away from the Country Music Marathon & Half Marathon! We love to see Nashville come together to welcome runners from all over the world as they pound the pavement through our beautiful city. And luckily for us (and you!), the Batch store has a prime spot on the marathon route this year. Whether you’re running, watching, cheering, or volunteering, stop by the Batch store to pick up some essentials for race weekend. Here are our recommendations:

Sweet Meat Jerky

For a quick hit of protein, you can’t beat Sweet Meat Jerky. It’s all-natural, organic, flavorful, and will make you question everything you thought you knew about jerky. (The most common customer reaction when trying Sweet Meat for the first time is, “I don’t even like jerky, but I love this.”) It's a perfect snack for runners and spectators alike.

Sunday Morning Pancake Mix

Because carbo-loading is a must, whether you're running the full marathon, half marathon, 5K, or hunkering down at home on Saturday to avoid traffic. And this pancake mix, made from hand-milled flour, is the best we've ever tasted.

Walker's Bloody Mary Mix

For the Sunday morning after the marathon, when you’re feeling sore, accomplished, and extremely deserving of a delicious stiff drink with brunch. Bloody Mary fanatics can't get enough of this spicy mix.

Thistle Farms Lotion & Little Seed Farm Healing Balm

After running 26 miles (or even standing around for a few hours watching other people run 26 miles), your dogs are going to be barking. Give your sore feet some much-needed TLC with a moisturizing massage using Thistle Farms lavender lotion, then treat rough spots and blisters with Little Seed Farm’s Hand-Aid Healing Balm (trust us, despite the name, it works just as well on feet, and the botanical mix of soothing herbs and oils works wonders for callouses, scrapes, and aches).

Best of luck to everyone running, and we hope to see you this weekend!
