Susannah has presented a sports nutrition talk to our high school cross country team the last two years. Her presentation addresses the complex issues around athletics/training/performance and nutrition in an age appropriate and understandable format. Using lots of examples and practical information, she gives athletes the building blocks and information they need to make better decisions about their own food choices and overall nutrition. Topics included everything from what to eat race day to the importance of proper fueling after a hard workout. Susannah also covered gender specific issues particularly as they affect endurance athletes. Having Susannah Wallenstrom talk to our team has had a huge positive impact and provided our students with information and tools that will help them for the rest of their lives.
