Run Streak and Running Goals:

Progress: As of 11/21/21, I’ve now run 1,363 miles for the year, while maintaining my 325-day run streak.

Race Report: 31 Miles for 31 Years

On my birthday weekend, I continued my annual tradition of celebrating my birthday by running a race. In my race recap, I write about the following:

  • A conversation with the 100K overall winner, Ryan Ung, who also worked for Supersapiens and wears a continuous glucose monitor during races
  • The 100K 1st place finishers glucose strategy for racing (i.e. his minimum baseline for glucose)
  • My insights running with the Supersapiens CGM app
  • How I spent 44% of my race in the “low-intensity” zone of blood sugar
  • Why most food supplied at races are junk (i.e. M&Ms, Cinnamon rolls, Snickers, Cookies, etc.), and what food sources I chose at the aid station (Sweet Potato, Banana, That’s It! Bar, Nuts, Seeds, etc.)
  • Why I chose Spring Sports Nutrition Gels to power my race, in addition to HVMN ketone esters
  • How long I plan to continue to running my age in years
  • The camaraderie of running
  • Congrats to Jenn, Christine, and Jaymin for completing their 100K!
