Show Notes

Welcome to Episode 46 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast! It has taken me WAY longer than planned to get this show back into action, so thank you for your patience. I'm very pleased to finally be recording again and to bring you today's Athlete Nutrition Profile, featuring elite ultrarunner Coree Woltering.

You may be familiar with Coree from World's Toughest Race - Eco Challenge Fiji  (streamed on Amazon) - he was one of the athletes on Team Onyx, the first all-black team to compete in expedition racing. Or you may have read one of the many features on him as a black and openly gay ultrarunner living in the Midwest (not a typical home base for a trail runner), and how he is promoting racial and geographical diversity in the sport. Or perhaps you’ve seen the viral pictures of him racing in his signature Noodle Bagz bathing suit. 

If you’re not at all familiar with Coree, then you’re in for a treat. He’s a formidable athlete, but he’s also a fun, down to earth guy, with SO many amazing stories to share. 

Here are a few of the things we cover in today's show:

  • Growing up in Ottawa, Illinois from a nutrition perspective 
  • Juggling a variety of sports (track, XC, swimming, and eventually triathlon) from middle school through college, and his struggles with and recovery from disordered eating 
  • Discovering and falling in love with ultra running - early nutrition mishaps and later success once he got his nutrition dialed in 
  • Eco Challenge Fiji - a race nutrition story that will make you cringe
  • Pandemic FKT on the Ice Ace Trail - what does nutrition look like while running 1,147 miles in 21 days when everything is shut down?! 
  • Coree's everyday eating routine as well as his favorite sports nutrition products
  • Cake 365 - Coree's 2022 resolution to enjoy a baked good every single day

And of course, much much more. Thank you so much Coree for your time and the many many laughs we shared. I know you'll enjoy this episode!
