I specialize in sport and wellness nutrition, offering nutrition consultations for casual exercisers to competitive athletes, providing information on maximizing performance, weight management and nutrition for wellness and disease prevention.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Dayton in Dayton, OH and graduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with an emphasis in Sport Dietetics from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
My personal interest in sports and nutrition lead to my pursuit in the area professionally. Running since high school, I have competed in road and trail races from 5k to marathon - including the Boston Marathon and Triple Trail Challenge - with my favorite distances being the 10k & half marathon. I am also an avid skier and hiker/backpacker - I've skied the Colorado, Utah, Idaho and New Mexico Rockies and have hiked all over the western US.
Questions and Answers
I am a professional runner and am looking to develop more into a longer distance runner. In college I focused on the 1500 to the 3k Steeple Chase, and now have been racing on the roads and trying to be more competitive in the 5k to the Half Marathon. I can build muscle really easy when I strength train, and more muscle is not what I need for distance running. I am looking to balance out my training and only run with muscle that I need for long distances. My question is: How do I lose some muscle with diet and training to be more fit for my distance races?
Thank you so much!
It depends, we would really need to sit down and look at your diet and training schedule and see where we could make some changes. There are a lot of variables both in training and individually that contribute to a person's body composition.
I would recommend making an appointment with a RD who specializes in sports nutrition to help you reach your goals.
