One high point from 70.3 St. Croix was my race day nutrition.
Here is my “First Endurance” race day nutrition report:

3:45 am Breakfast (Race start time was 6:32 for the pro women):

2 cups of yogurt with 1 scoop of rice protein
1 banana
a handful of cereal
1 packet of Justin’s Almond Nut Butter
1 small cup of coffee

5′ before swim start: a taste of gu

Bike: 1 32 oz bottle with 2 scoops of EFS lemon lime drink , 1 banana
3 hits of liquid shot. At mile 30/35 I grabbed a bottle of gatorade that was on course. It was really, really hot. I needed a lot more liquid than usual. Please also note that I grabbed water at ever aid stating and gulped as much as possible.

Run: At every aid station I grabbed gatorade and water. I didn’t need any gels, orange slices, or food. The final 3 miles, I mixed coke and water together as felt like I needed a little mental boost to get me home.

Even though it was hot, hot, hot, I had no cramping or GI distress.  I like to keep my race day nutrition as simple as possible. Simple seems to work the best for me. Thank you to First Endurance for the best, cleanest, nutrition products on the planet. First Endurance makes it easy to have a good nutrition day!
