The Eat for Endurance Podcast

The Eat for Endurance podcast features Board-Certified Sports Dietitian Claire Shorenstein (MS RD CSSD CDN) and her nutrition tips for longevity in life and in sport. Through a combination of Nutrition Profiles featuring high-performing athletes, interviews with fellow Dietitians on their areas of expertise, and solo episodes on various nutrition topics, Claire hopes to inspire her listeners in their own training and fueling and demonstrate that there is no one-size-fits-all nutrition approach towards optimal health and sports performance.

Welcome to Episode 51 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast! Today I have a short recap for you  on my recent Rodeo Valley 50k race, a beautiful and challenging course in the Marin Headlands that I ran on August 6th. It was my first ultra in over 7 years, as well as my first ultra running all by myself (instead of with my husband). It felt so good to run my own race and prove to myself that I can still do long trail stuff after having k...

    Welcome to Episode 48 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring…yours truly! Somewhat spontaneously, I decided to do something different in this episode - spend some solo time with my mic and ask myself all the usual questions I throw at my guests! 

    I’m obviously not an elite athlete, so if you’re here for the big names and the RD interviews, feel free to skip this one. But if you’re curious to learn more about me and my own (very...
