Tweet The other day I had dinner with a registered dietitian who also has a Masters in Public Health. After my second Coke, I felt the need to explain that I don’t normally drink soda. Even though I was all jacked up from the the sugar and caffeine rushing through my system, I felt guilty. Yes, […]

Tweet There’s no escaping the truth: the more you run, the more you have to eat. A difficult reality for those of us who want to lose weight. After a long run or hard workout, you may feel like you could literally eat everything in the fridge. The ravenous hunger that accompanies strenuous running makes […]

Tweet I have a confession: I’m not the healthiest eater. I love junk food and it’s not something I’m ashamed to admit. Bring on the chocolate chip cookies and eggnog! But for most runners, a good nutrition plan is a top priority. A sound diet will help you recover more effectively, bring you closer to […]

A few pounds here. A minute PR in the half there. The improvements multiply over time and eventually you barely recognize […]

Most people accept that the holidays are a special time to eat a lot of crap and skimp on the exercise. And you know what? That’s okay! I’ll definitely be taking advantage […]

Tweet I have a confession. I’m obsessed with optimizing my life. Whether it’s finances (yes, I have a Roth IRA!), marathon workouts, decluttering and living more like a minimalist, or getting the best night’s sleep, I’m fascinated by learning how to be the best. The same is true with eating. For years, I’ve been reading […]

Tweet I’m a pretty thin guy.  When I’m doing my normal 60-70 miles per week, my weight fluctuates from 125 – 128 pounds.  This was my standard “summer weight” before collegiate cross-country and one of two indicators that I’m in good shape.  The other indicator is that my body considers a ten mile run a […]
