Mary Howser – or “Air Mare” to those who follow her – isn’t your typical athlete and she doesn’t compete in your typical race. Mary is a part of a new trend in fitness competitions – paddleboard racing.

In addition to the strength, balance and stamina it takes to be competitive, the paddleboard phenomena is just as much about community as it is about the competition. Traveling, training and racing together, this tight knit group of stellar athletes becomes a second family of support and reinforcement.

But just like any sport, the right fuel is one important piece of the puzzle. Mary and her crew are big fans of Diana’s Bananas Banana Babies and Banana Bites – they get all the right vitamins and minerals they need from the all-natural bananas, and all the reward they could ask for in the gourmet chocolate! Be sure to follow Mary’s paddleboard adventures through her Instagram account @air_mare. And check out this fun and energizing new trend in sports.
