Have you either entered or thinking about entering an endurance or multi-day stage race event and feel overwhelmed about how to fuel yourself? What to do about protein and carbs? How much of what is enough? In this class, I will discuss and share with you what I've learned from my own experience and will walk you through my take on what works and what doesn't.

With this knowledge in hand you will be well on your way to handling one of the most daunting and important parts of getting you to the finish line of any endurance or multi-day event. How to go about navigating the complexity which food has become in our society.
