EB36: Ask Meredith: Dialing in Your Nutrition For Longer Race Distances


Welcome to our Ask Meredith feature on the Endurance Buzz Podcast where Texas-based nutritionist and ultra athlete, Meredith Terranova shares her thoughts on questions you submit on the Ask Meredith page.

Robert submitted the following question:

“I am 59 and have fallen in love with the challenge of the trail run. I am wanting to venture into longer distances but I wonder about how to nutritionally prepare for the longer distances. Does a person’s age change the way we prepare for the longer runs?”

Enjoy as Meredith and I chat about aging and exploring longer race distances including:

  • training reminders as an aging/wiser athlete
  • basic preparation changes if coming from the road running scene
  • how to pick your fuel
  • Meredith’s Mint Clif Brick experience at Rocky 50
  • Eating frequency
  • the aid station buffet table and understanding your body
  • be not afraid!
