I always say you can never see a city better than to run in it. This also holds true for getting a feel for the people of the area, even the neighborhood. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a friendly runner. I do a slight wave, or head nod at the minimum. Usually, I’m the one saying good morning, or sometimes striking up a conversation. I’m also the one who is disappointed when I don’t get a nod or wave back.
If you are expecting to find a blog about eating competitions, sorry this is not the blog for you! Instead, this blog is focused on proper eating during long distance endurance events, primarily endurance running events. I’ll focus mostly on running this time because iron distance triathlons, endurance swims and bike rides have different nutrition need and tips than running events although some basic principles are the same.
