From the Publisher
"Suzanne Girard Eberles book Endurance Sports Nutrition is the most comprehensive book Ive read on the topic of nutrition for endurance athletes. It is filled with scientific research as well as practical, everyday tips. Everyone from the weekend warrior to the elite endurance athlete could benefit from reading this book. I only wish it had been written before I started running ultramarathons. Unfortunately, I had to learn many of the lessons in this book through trial and error."
