Many Nutritious Miles: Sports Nutrition

BEST FOR: Anyone looking to learn clear, science-based information regarding fueling during workouts; hydration; pre-race + recovery nutrition; and supplements.

8 Weeks: June 17-August 4, 2024

While running itself is fairly straight forward—pick a program, a race, and put one foot in front of the other—fueling for running is not so simple.

To wit:
How many carbs do you need to consume during a half marathon? (More than you think!)

How many carbs should you eat before that half marathon? (Carb loading=a thing of the past.)

How much water and electrolytes are ideal for your individual, active body? (It varies wildly!)

Are there research-backed supplements that support your recovery and lifestyle? (Absolutely!)

Enter: Many Nutritious Miles, a straight-shooting program led by sports nutritionist Jenn Giles, MS, RDN, CSSD, endurance athlete and mother of four who helps athletes from youth hockey players to 100-mile runners optimize their nutrition.

Over the course of eight weeks, Jenn will help you dial your calories—and confidence. We’ll dive into sports nutrition products (and offer some DIY options) as you personalize what works best for you; test your sweat rate so you can be sure you’re getting enough hydration and electrolytes; detail optimal pre- and post-workout snacks; and give an overview of supplements that can be helpful—or harmful—to your active life.

In addition, Many Nutritious Miles: Sports Nutrition features:

Healthy recipes for a pre-workout nosh and a post-workout healthy treat;
An Ask Me Anything weekly column from Jenn to clarify any questions you have;
Optional interactive elements if you want to go deeper into hydration (hello sweat test!); supplements; and sports nutrition;
•  Two live Q + A calls to check in personally and connect with Jenn.

At the end of eight weeks, you will be confident in your nutritional choices around your workouts—and, as a result, feel stronger, more capable, and more energetic during them.

Jennifer has 24 years of  experience working with athletes in all sports and of all ages. She thrives on helping athletes achieve their goals!

Jennifer also has a myriad of consulting experience from corporate wellness to clinical hospital settings to community fitness centers. What’s more, she sits on the USOC (United States Olympic Committee) dietitian registry and is an adjunct Professor of Sports Nutrition at Columbia University, her Alma Mater.

Jennifer’s background is unique in that she was a youth athlete (swimmer and softball player) turned adult athlete (runner, open water swimmer and triathlete) who married an athlete (runner and triathlete) and is now the mother of four athletes (swimmers, hockey players, and lacrosse players). She’s also a multiple Ironman Finisher and multiple marathon finisher, including the Boston Marathon.

In Many Nutritious Miles, each eight-week block has a different focus; each block has four topics we’ll cover.

The materials give an overview of the basics, and apply the topic to active women (in all phases of life) when appropriate. The written materials are accompanied by an explanatory video from Jenn.

In each block, we have two live Q + A calls with Jenn to go over the topic and answer individual questions. We put out a call for questions in advance and record the session, so if you are unable to make the live session, you will still have your question answered and can watch the replay at your convenience.

In addition, Jenn is on the private Facebook page, and she’ll post an Ask Me Anything post weekly.

All the materials from the block live in your account, so you can access them at any point.

Yes. The monthly materials will offer a variety of choices to fit all styles of eating. If you have additional questions, you can ask them during the monthly live Q + A.

We’ve added 12-16 recipes to each block, as well as interactive elements (like charting your protein, doing a sweat test, experimenting with breath work).

What’s more, Jenn is hosting a weekly Ask Me Anything on the private Facebook page, and we’ll have two live calls with her during each eight-week block. We’ve also added a weight management focus to the Active Lifestyle block.

The written materials and intro videos are the same as the previous course. That said, it’s always helpful to refresh the fundamentals in a straightforward, accessible way.

If you’re not a Facebooker, no problem. You’ll still have all the essentials of the program: the monthly materials and the Live Monthly Q + A, which is held over Zoom. (We put out a call for questions in the newsletter prior to the Zoom session.)

No, we are unable to offer refunds.
