An absolute MUST READ for anyone venturing into running/biking. I can’t tell you how much I’ve battled with figuring out what to eat and NOT EAT while running or even a few days before going for a run. Just last night my run was terrible because I ate red sauce for lunch. I didn’t even have a stomach ache, but when it came time to run, I didn’t have energy enough to run proper hill repeats because my body was focusing on my stomach instead of letting my blood carry oxygen to my muscles.

As someone with a weak stomach that’s trying to get more into running, I highly recommend this story. Maybe I can stop the race-day Immodium…
