It’s like you were reading my mind. I’m new to triathlon and I’ve always been a long distance cyclist. Nutrition has ruined far too many of my road rides. It’s great to have some concrete advice to follow and I love the calorie calculator that you sent to me in my email. Your YouTube channel is helping me immensely to plan for my first triathlon season. Thanks Taren!

I like eating a couple of those honey stinger waffles. A good break from gels and chews

You need a nutrition sponsor!

So far, I’ve found that I like gels in a reusable flask. I mix it with a little water, to adjust the consistency to what works for me. Plus I like not generating trash that may end up on the ground. My 2 cents on that. Keep up the great info and fun, Taren. Thanks!

Great Video what do you think of UCAN? I used it for my ironman distance race and it worked for me. But its like$$$$$$.

Awesome series! Thanks Taren! Definitely helped me figure out where to start with my nutrition plan and the different options to look into.

I like the old gels… chewing them makes it feel a little like a meal in the middle of a marathon. My favorite are the Gu Gels…

Hi Taren, just watched this video and wonder if you still have the nutrition guide on your website. I clicked on the Nutrition Race option but haven’t get any emails regarding. Thanks

This may sound like a noob question, but what about consuming a five hour energy shot before the race or during? What about coffee before the race?
