Summer Exploits: Our Plan to Conquer BC

a1

Whistler—about two hours from Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia in Canada—is one of our favorite places on earth. Past host city of the (winter) Olympics, current home of Crankworx, Wanderlust and Ironman Canada, it’s a popular destination. And since we’ve spend a few weeks most summers out there to see friends and so Peter could race Crankworx, we knew it was a place we wanted to really spend some time in.

Iron War, his book on Mark Allen and Dave Scott’s epic Ironman battles is still one of my favorite reads of all time. He’s also known for his other nutrition book, Racing Weight. This one, though, is so ridiculously in-line with what I wrote about in Fuel Your Ride that I fell immediately in love with it. Now, that doesn’t mean if you read one, the other will be boring. Far from it. Rather, his book is great for reaffirming the concept that nutrition is a lot more simple (and, OK, a lot more complex) than we make it. He has five habits he outlines that make endurance athletes great, and I’m really excited having read this while just starting into base training for Ironman. […]
