Carbohydrate Utilization - the fun way

In September of 2011, I had an amazing opportunity to spend a day at Gatorade Sports Science Institute or GSSI.  You can read my post about the experience here.

It's not every day you get to see a professionally produced "webisode" about your GI issues in racing, so I had to share it with everyone! :D

If anyone watching the video has any questions for me about the topic, PLEASE leave a comment.  I have been putting these protocols into my training on a weekly basis and it does help!  


If you are interested in reading my race report from the HalfRev in Anderson, SC you can check it out here.


  1. I just found your blog today. I would love to know more. I am training for my 4th marathon and thinking of doing a 1/2 ironman later this year. I have been trying to find out more about eating on my runs and how much to eat and when. Any info you have would be awesome.
