Melissa Spooner on Ironman Nutrition
Ironman Champ to Talk Ironman Fuel
Most people think completing an Ironman is an
amazing feat. What most people don?t realize is that
completing an Ironman without bonking (running out
of fuel), bloating (consuming too many calories), or
even vomiting is much harder than crossing the finish
line before midnight.
Three-time Ironman champion and nutritionist
Spooner will be at Triple Sports to talk about ultra-
distance nutrition from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday,
Nov. 15. The event is $10 All entry fees will be
donated to the Crohn?s and Colitis Foundation of
For the 2,000 or more athletes who participate in
April?s Ironman Arizona event in Tempe, how well
they complete the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and
26.2-mile run will depend on more than just physical
fitness. It will depend on whether or not they
managed to fuel their body properly during the 9- to
Getting nutrition right is crucial, but it?s also
challenging. Most Ironman athletes will burn 10,000
to 20,000 calories over the course of the event.
Replacing all of those calories isn?t feasible. Figuring
out how many to replace ? and how to replace
them ? is the tricky part. Athletes typically spend
hundreds of dollars finding the right fuel for their
?What you eat during an Ironman can make or break
your race,? says Triple
Sports co-owner Kara Anderson, who is training for
her second Ironman. ?Eat too much,
and you get sick. Don?t eat enough, and you run out
of energy. It?s a delicate balance.?
Triple Sports Diva Nite
The Right Sports Bra ? It?s More Important than You Think
Sports bras seem simple enough, but for a lot of
women, finding the perfect fit can be like finding the
perfect pair of jeans ? nearly impossible. From bras
that smash to bras that simply don?t support, many
women have endured the discomfort of a poorly
fitting sports bra.
?A lot of women end up in a bra that simply isn?t
designed for their cup size,? said
Kristi Kidwell, of Champion Athleticwear. ?And that?s
what we want to prevent by teaching women what
bras are right for them.?
Triple Sports is joining forces with Champion
Athleticwear to offer the Valley?s first-ever Diva Nite,
a free bra-fit clinic for women that will include expert
bra fitting, along with wine, cheese, a Champion
sports bra raffle and other Diva
goodies. The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 29 at Triple Sports, 4032 N. Miller
Rd., in Scottsdale. Champion sports bras also will be
discounted 25% for participants.
Research has shown that up to 50 percent of women
experience breast pain while exercising. Finding the
right sports bra that offers an appropriate amount of
support can ease the pain as well as reduce the
irreversible stretching of ligaments, which causes the
breasts to sag.
?A sport bra needs to fit correctly in order to
provide support, eliminate digging and chaffing,? said
the correct bra size and style category is much like
the process for determining an appropriate running
shoe. Often women don't really know their correct
bra size or even realize there are several bra options
available that will allow them the comfort and
support to train without pain and irritation.?
According to Kidwell, the most common bra fit issues
1) Lack of support leading to the ?double bra.?
Women should need only one bra.
2) Chafing and or digging from the band or the straps
3) Incorrect cup size causing spillage over the top
and sides of the bra
Congrats from Triple Sports!
