Are you among the many runners, triathletes, coaches, trainers, and support crews—including parents, partners and siblings—who spend too much time on the road, traveling from one sporting event to the next? If so, your food budget is likely tight, your encounters with unhealthy foods are relentless, and your hankerings for comfort foods might often overpower […]

BolderBoulder International Challenge Gets Easier for Americans

Okay, that’s probably a bad headline.  It’s never easy when racing Kenyans and Ethiopians, but the BolderBoulder international challenge did, in fact, get easier for Americans this year. The U.S. men last won the international challenge in 2004, when a team of Meb Keflezighi, Abdi Abdirahman, and Alan Culpepper finished second, eighth, and ninth individually.  Ethiopia has won the […]

Fuel For Champions What Triathletes Eat

Food is fuel. Or so the saying goes. For triathletes, this is especially true. They compete in three events in races that, at the Olympic distance (1.5-kilometer swim, 40-kilometer bike, 10-kilometer run), can last around two hours. Going all out for this length of time, often in hot, humid conditions, triathletes’ diets are as important […]
