The Athletes Kitchen -  Sports Nutrition: #Science Not Opinion
Running performance starts with fueling, not training! The best way to fuelto be a better runner seems to be a debatable topic these days.

Here are some tidbits of information from this year's 35th annual meeting in Keystone CO, May 2018 (#SCANSymposium)

High School Coaches on Youth Running and Burnout
By a recent program-by-program count, there are now more than four million children logging miles in elementary school or after-school running programs. (1) Coupling that with the surging number of kids entering recreational Fun Runs and 5K races, there is an expectation that there would be similar growth in the number of kids who would run in high school and beyond. And yes, the number of high school students running cross country is at an all-time high nationally.
