About

97704-761-023fWelcome!  I am The Hungry Athlete!

I am the everyday athlete and foodie.  I grew up playing sports and have enjoyed learning new sports throughout all of my adult life.  I played competitive tennis in high school, has some fun trying to tumble like a gymnast, even more fun trying to be a dancer, discovered golf in my late 20′s, learned to snowboard in my 30′s, rediscovered my passion for cycling and running, then finally learned how to swim in my 40′s.  I completed my first Ironman in Canada in August of 2012 and my first ultra marathon, The Northface Endurance Challenge 50K in 2014.  These were a couple of the best experiences of my life.  I am also in the best shape of my life!

I enjoy an active lifestyle and good eating habits.  This doesn’t mean I can eat anything or that I always eat a well balanced meal.  I have my own personal challenges with cramping, hydration and getting the right amount of carbohydrates and protein in my diet.  I also have a big sweet tooth!  I love ice cream way too much!  Like everyone, I need to make a conscious effort to get the right amount of nutrients and fuel into my body so I can feel and look good everyday of my life.  It is from a personal level from which this healthy recipes for athletes blog was born.

Join me on my athletic and culinary journey as I learn about training, share my inspirations and develop recipes to feed the hungry athlete.

I’m also excited to be a part of Team Betty for the third year in a row!  I’ll be representing Team Betty in all of my 2017 races.  If you’d like some of your own Betty Designs, get it here: http://bit.ly/1AmQzuZ

    Oh I just found your blog, great!
    I love the description of yourself, and of course, the combination snowboard and triathlon, just like myself.
    I learned snowboarding (and am still learning) in my late 30’s as well and started triathlon just a few years earlier than that.
    I’ve been loving sports throughout my whole life (playing basketball regularly as a kid, then jazz-dance, then just jogging and hiking).

    I’m looking forward to browse and read through your recipes, because I need some inspiration. There I think I can learn a lot from you!

    Imke 🙂

    (sorry, my blog is all in norwegian – I was planning an international version though – maybe I should get started with that, too)

    Thanks so much for your comment Imke! I will follow your blog even though I don’t understand Norwegian! I look forward to hearing about your upcoming triathlons, snowboarding adventures and of course your thoughts on my recipes! I think I can learn a lot from you too! You have inspired me in return!
