Nutrition Fuels Running….

When my running took a slower turn in my early 40’s I thought it was the final slowdown – we all get older and we all slow down….  In 2013 my wife said: “Nick, you’re just getting old”.  And you know what, it made sense…. my times had steadily gotten slower and I was trying to run more miles and more races….and nothing was working !!!

Flip forward to November 2013.  My friend posted her before and after weight loss post on Facebook.  I posted back – wow, how did you do it?  She said a word I had never heard before – Isagenix.   She then said that it could help me as an athlete.  Honestly, here I am at 145 lbs, saying…there’s no way I’m using a weight loss product to lose weight.  She explained that it was not a weight loss product – it is a nutritional system for everyone.  I then proceeded to talk to many people, most of whom had never heard of the system either.  My chiropractor and my personal trainer convinced me to try it and I jumped in.

Fast forward to April 2014 and I ran 18:58 in a 5K, 45 sec faster than I had run it in 18 mo.  Then I ran my 3rd fastest marathon 2 weeks later in Providence, RI.  A year later I ran my fastest Boston.  Then I ran my PR in the 20K (1:23:39) and 1/2 marathon (1:30:05) in my life in September 2015 and March 2016, respectively. Today March 26, 2017, I ran my PR in the 10 mile run at the GS10 at 1:06:36.  (Note added Dec 2016 – I ran 18:24 on December 4 and my 3rd fastest marathon in October [3:21])   I can tell everyone with conviction that this system made me a better runner and athlete.   I have also started strength training and this has allowed me to run fewer miles – with confidence I ran my fewest miles since 1998 in 2015-2016 – with better results.  I can’t tell you how excited I am – it has been years since I have felt such energy and running is fun again….well, even more fun than in years…almost like college….haha

My questions to all runners is then – what are you willing to do to get better?  And, how can I help you as a coach and with your nutrition?
