Nutrition Tips

The best advice I’ve ever received: Eat on the downhills.

My own follow up piece of advice: Get good at eating GU Energy Gels and not falling on the downhills.

Fun Fact

My first trail race I carried a Dunkin’ Donuts foam coffee mug with a hair tie around my hand as my handheld after seeing everyone at the start with water. #newbie
