Today we’re going to focus on the top mistakes that endurance athletes make. I love this topic because most of us that like endurance sports, like to talk about the next big nutrition fad, drink, etc, but don’t always research it as thoroughly as we should. I’ve been playing with a roughly adapted Keto diet for about 7 months now, and though I’ve had some successes, I’ve had some failures too. Listen in to learn from the board certified and registered sports dietician Dina Griffin!

The Land Run 100 is one of the most iconic gravel grinders in the country. If you've seen bikes and happy riders covered in reddish orange mud, it's probably from the Land Run 100. It's about to open registration for year 6 on 11/3, so it's still a newer event per say, but the recognition thanks to its famous red dirt and festival atmosphere is legendary. The course is comprised of 105 miles of punchy climbs and just under 7k of gain. Make sure you read up before tackling this one as preparation is the key to success!

I love the Hawk 100, actually all the distances, and would love to help spread the word about their awesome race. This one is in my home state and I’ve personally ran the trail marathon, 50 mile, and 100 mile at their event and had a blast doing so. The course is actually covered in trees for 90% of it, it’s a rolling style course with good hard pack dirt, and a bit of a rocky factor that isn’t loose, isn’t big, but I think just right. Today my quest and plea to you all, is to come and do the 100 miler. We need to get at least 100 100 mile finishers across the line to get them to become a Western States qualifier. Can you help us out?
