19: Athlete Nutrition Profile - Outdoor Sports Journalist and Author, Lisa Jhung
Feb 10, 2020 Season 2 Episode 19
Claire Shorenstein, MS RD CDN with Lisa Jhung

Welcome to Episode 19 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring outdoor sports journalist, editor, copywriter, and content marketing creator, Lisa Jhung. 

Lisa has been a journalist in the outdoor industry for 20 years. She writes about adventure, running, endurance, and outdoor sports and the gear that goes with them for magazines like Outside, Runner’s World, Backpacker, Mountain, Women’s Running and Podium Runner, and also writes content for brands in the outdoor industry. Lisa has authored two books: “Trailhead: The Dirt on All Things Trail Running,” and most recently, "Running That Doesn't Suck: How To Love Running (Even If You Think You Hate It).” That’s actually how Lisa and I connected - she reached out a couple years ago to interview me for the fueling section of her book (find me on page 161), and when I received my copy, I figured why not interview her too?

We had a fun conversation that took us through a wide variety of topics, including: 

  • Growing up in California, with the culinary influences of her Korean father 
  • Life as a college athlete, including struggles with nutrition and fueling
  • How she came to love running (because it wasn’t always that way…hence her latest book!) and her tips for all of you! 
  • Life in Colorado, with her husband and two young, active boys
  • Her own passion for outdoor sports (running, triathlon, skate skiing, snow showing, snowboarding, adventure racing, and more) and the nutrition that helps support these activities 
  • Life as a sports journalist and all the adventures that accompany her work

I hope you enjoy the episode! If you’d like to learn more about Lisa, check out the links below:
