Are you confident in your race day fueling plan?

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that there are two ways to utilize carbs during a race:  pulling from our glycogen stores <aka why we carb load> and taking in easily digestible carbs during the race <aka gels, chews, carb drinks>.

Carb loading

We have a whole lotta information for you on carb loading, including a carb load calculator, and a free carb load guide.

Fuel during the race

We all know by now that fueling during a long race is a must, but how much do we take? And how often?  If you are not sure where to start, try our race fuel calculator below. Grab your preferred fuel choice, flip it over to look at the nutrition facts label, and complete the fields below. Be sure to practice fueling during training runs, so you nail it on race day.
