    Zied

    Hi, guys! I recently had the opportunity to interview Elisa Zied, a registered dietitian, about optimal nutrition for marathon training, specifically what nutrients are important to fueling one’s body before and after workouts.

It’ll actually be my third marathon, but since it’s been awhile since I last ran one (3+ years), I’m feeling a little rusty with my training knowledge.

    Hi, guys! I loved reading all of your comments on my 10 Truths and a Lie post. But, jeez Louise, a lot of you guys think I have zero will-power! Haha! The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot […]
