You're Going to Eat What?!

I enjoyed reading this piece, and fueling seems like something other unicyclists who ride longer distances might also be interested in.


You're Going to Eat What?!
By Morgan Sjogren

Pro runners dish about the strangest foods they’ve fueled with on the trails

I don’t even like stinky cheese, but there I was gnawing on a baguette filled with the pungent variety of aged dairy while running up a French mountain pass in a sleet storm. Just two days earlier, I’d loaded my fastpack with conventional snacks (you know things like energy gels, nut butter, and beef jerky) but my rations diminished quickly during monster days of mileage and vert in the mountains. Now, I’d resorted to eating whatever I could get my hands on—including mid-run spaghetti with meatballs—and even things that I personally consider too gross to eat when I’m not running. Soggy tuna sandwich, anyone?

Every serious trail runner has been in this exact situation, perhaps even a right of passage: the moment that circumstances like preventing an emergency bonk, dealing with muscle cramps, or giving into a strange craving to keep morale up results in fueling with the most bizarre foods. And I do mean strange. Some of the U.S.’s top trail pros share their most unique suffer snack rituals.

(Warning: The following confessions are not for the faint of stomach!)
