Wellness Learning Theater - Race Across America: Nutrition to go the Distance

An Ultra-endurance event, Race Across America is a 3000 mile cycle race from coast to coast in 10 days.  To go the distance athletes have to consume at least 14,000 calories per day!  But what does that look like?  How do you train for that?  And what can we learn about nutrition and healthy eating when the average consumption level should be 2000 calories per day.  Discover what Mark Gibson learned about endurance racing nutrition and how he lost 50 pounds in the process.  Then, see how he applied his nutrition plan to the race and what he learned in the process.
