Well, we're home now. Highlights of the trip to Glacier National Park

OK, to start things off, we stayed in Whitefish, at the Super 8. They gave us great service and an inexpensive, comfortable room. The weather was warm, and unfortunately all the snow melted and left the trails and slopes a sheet of ice.

One of the results of this was my wife taking a nasty fall. Her crampon broke loose on some rotten ice on the trail and she took a 20 foot fall, cartwheeling down a near vertical slope....on St Paddies Day, no less. The luck of the Irish did protect her, though. She came out of it with a massive body bruise, rather than broken bones. This happened on Brown's Peak.

Here are some highlights of Glacier

I'm headed back out this Summer for some backpacking out in Glacier, spending a week or two tramping around, that's for sure!

I am very interested to know about your nutrition training regimen? I am triathlete myself and a registered dietitian and I have specialized in bariatric and sport nutrition. I am working with post-op athletes so they have their own set of guidelines given their new anatomy. I am very interested to hear how you fuel your body during training and races and if you have had any problems
with GI distress or bonking? If so, I would love to help you in own training and races.

I can tolerate maltodextrin base gels, etc, and under ride conditions, I take in about 250 kcals/hr. I sip water constantly to stay hydrated, too.
