We have personal trainers, coaches, massage therapists… why not your own personal nutrition coach?
Many people don’t know Board Certified Sport Dietitians/Registered Dietitians exist, don’t realize the value of working with one, or simply prefer to do trial and error until they just can’t any longer.

My plans for participating in a few cycling and running events were sidelined in 2016 due to an early season bike accident that left me with a severely fractured elbow and injured shoulder. But so what that there was no finish line for me to cross in 2016? Sometimes we athletes need to view these “life events” as a journey similar to training for a competition. How do we endure to get to that "different" finish line of healing or coping?
