Claire Shorenstein, MS RD CDN with Tina Muir

Welcome to Episode 23 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring elite runner, Running for Real podcast host, and soon to be Mom of two, Tina Muir. 

Tina famously took a break from professional running in 2017, at the peak of her career and just a few months after setting a PR of 2:36 in the marathon, when she decided to prioritize her health and well-being after not having her period for nine years. She has openly shared her story and her own struggles to bring more awareness to amenorrhea and disordered eating commonly found among female athletes, and has created a wonderful online community for runners to support one another on good days and bad. 

I hope you enjoy learning more about Tina’s nutrition story and how her relationship with food has evolved over time. We discussed her journey as an athlete, her struggles with food and nutrition, why she decided to stop running, how she regained her period, nutrition as a family of 3 (soon to be 4!), establishing her Running for Real community and podcast, and much more. It was a fun chat, and of course a very open, honest and real discussion of important topics that many athletes (especially women) face. I hope you find it helpful! 

Thank you again Tina for coming on the show, and wishing you as smooth as possible rest of your pregnancy!

PLEASE NOTE - this episode (including the intro) was recorded on March 3rd, so that is why there is zero discussion of Covid-19. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy, and that this episode provides a bit of entertainment while you stay home or enjoy a solo social distancing walk or run.
