Running Nutrition, Fueling and Recipes For Runners
Running nutrition is the cornerstone of successful training and recovery, supplying the vital energy and nutrients we need for peak performance and effective recovery.
The articles and resources below will help set you up for success. You won’t just dial in your nutrition for running, but for you and your family’s everyday life as well.
Knowing what to eat and drink can feel overwhelming. Sports nutrition recommendations for fueling and hydration often differs significantly from general dietary guidelines and it only gets more confusing with the prevalence of “diet culture” and fads.
Here’s the deal. There is no right or wrong when it comes to which eating style is best. Everyone is different. But, determining if your diet supports your running goals can be challenging.
Knowing how to fuel properly can be even more difficult, because you are unique. Guidelines are in place, but most of us will need to tweak our fueling strategies to reach our own personal optimal performance. Over and over again in my coaching practice and in my own personal runner, I have found this to be true. I hope the resources I provide below will help you do just that.
If you want more 1:1 direct guidance for your specific situation, I encourage you to reach out via my coaching page, where I can work with you directly on your running and nutrition needs.
This section includes articles I wrote on the essentials of nutrition and see how the right food choices can transform your health and running.

As a running and nutrition coach, I will say this with a strong conviction that there is no dietary style that is best for everyone. No matter what hype you hear about a specific diet, chances are it won’t be your magic bullet for weight loss or health. All of them have some pros and cons.
