In Topic: Marathon Training :-)

25 April 2010 - 06:25 PM

I have run several half marathons and two full marathons since being diagnosed 3 years ago with Celiac. I personally use Infinit which is a sports drink that has everything you need nutrition wise in it for your race. You can order it at Infinit.com. The people there are very knowledgeable and can help you with the formula that will work best for you. I carry a water bottle and then baggies of powder with me to mix at aide stations when my bottle is empty. I have also used Sharkies and Powergel.

As for the carbo loading the night before, you can do rice or even a gluten free pasta. I like the Tinkanyada (sp?)rice pasta. You can also do chicken breasts for protein. The morning of, I usually will have a gluten free bagel with peanut butter and a banana.

I am attempting my first Ironman Triathlon this coming weekend. Wish me luck!

Good luck with your fundraising and marathon!


In Topic: Pei Wei Question

28 June 2009 - 09:45 AM

Pei Wei is my favorite place to eat. The gluten-free sweet and sour chicken/shrimp is awesome. It is very sweet and served with pinapple and green peppers, which can easily be pushed to the side. The gluten-free Chicken salad rolls are really good too, but I am not sure how kid friendly they are. Pei Wei, in my experience has always been really careful about making sure it is gluten-free, though they do give you soy sauce (in little packets)that has wheat in it, so stay away from the soy sauce. I would definitely recommend Pei Wei!
