Greetings, Friends!

Nutrition.  The word alone makes some of us recoil because we know it could – – it should – – be better for all of us.  But it can be difficult to start or even intimidating to learn what is most helpful and beneficial…  Not anymore!  Our Featured Conversation this episode is with Sarah Shanahan; she is a registered dietician and nutritionist, with 10+ years of experience, an Ivy League education and a present role with Good Measure Meals.  She brings it all to bare for D2, me and our listeners.  This will help you begin or continue to make the best choices for your diet AND for your upcoming training and races!  We also have a great question from the Podcast Payout that allows us to comment on shoe selection for training and racing and when a distressing amount of soreness finds your feet… 

Listen on!  Share often!  The Show Notes are below…
