VIRTUAL PHEEL GOOD 5k.jpg(Editor’s note: This race will be held at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9, at the FITniche running store in Lakeland, Florida. A virtual race is also included for the memorial event.)

The crowds, the clock, the competition, and the newness of an untraveled course … these are things that many runners find very attractive about participating in an organized road race. Interestingly, the absence of these very same things are also fueling the growing appeal of virtual races.

By Nancy Clark, MS, RD
In this era of highly competitive sports, more and more runners and triathletes are eagerly seeking information on how to fuel optimally. Performance nutrition is also of interest to Marines, special operations troops such as the Navy Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) teams, and others in the military who need to perform at a very high level to both survive and to carry out their missions. Hence, effective fueling practices are a topic of great interest and research for the US Armed Forces.
