Luna Love #1 - Chocolate Peppermint Stick
Luna Love #2 - Chocolate Dipped Coconut
Lunas may not be the top choice for healthy nutrition but when you spend hours upon hours shunning real food and drink you have to somewhat like what you're putting into your body. And I love these. The only downside is the chocolate coating - it melts in your jersey pocket or in transition and can be quite messy. I froze them for my Ironmans last year and it helped tremendously, but you still risk coating yourself in chocolate. Because of this, my second favorite bar becomes my go-to choice for race day - Hammer Cashew Coconut Chocolate Chip. It's seriously delicious and as an added bonus is gluten-free.
My other favorite training foods:
- Raspberry Hammer Gel
- Chocolate Chip Cliff Bar
- PowerBar Gel Blasts
- Gatorade Endurance

Despite a 4am wake-up for a day trip to Cincinnati I nailed today's workout - a whole 30 minutes of running, my first since the ill-fated LA Marathon. So far, so great!
