Ep. 90: Zion 100 Mile Ultra Marathon Recap with Julie Shobe, MS RDN

Eat for Endurance Podcast Interview with Julie Shobe on her nutrition for the Zion 100 ultramarathon

Welcome to Episode 90 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring sports dietitian and ultra runner Julie Shobe, MS RDN.

Julie is a second-time guest on the show, and I brought her back to tell me all about her recent Zion 100 mile ultra marathon finish. In case you missed it, we did an in-depth episode (number 69) all about how to fuel an ultra marathon.

So think of today's episode as a sequel, where instead of general ultra nutrition advice we talk specifically about how Julie created her own fueling plan, what that looked like during training, and how everything played out for her on race day. And as we all know when it comes to these longer endurance events, things rarely go according to plan!

Julie and I had such a fun conversation. She shares all the lessons she learned, including things about her nutrition that surprised her, what did and didn’t go as well as she had hoped, plus some hilarious stories. We also go off on a few tangents, and even touch on the recent drama about Spring Energy’s Awesome Sauce. I hope you enjoy this episode and find it useful, especially for those of you training for ultras!
