Today after work I headed to Tufts for a young alumni forum with a few Tufts entrepreneurs and a handful of undergrads. It was great to see some old friends, make some new friends, and to drop some knowledge on some future successful Tufts students. After reading 50 Jobs in 50 States I moved onto this Nutrition book I bought after seeing the author give a talk. Nancy Clark is a Sports Nutritionist and professional badass. She has worked with a few pro sports team in New England (Red Sox and Celtics), some Division 1 sports teams in Boston, several olympians, has two of her own practices, and started the all-women gym Healthworks that is exploding in popularity around Boston. Her book which so far has been filled with great, practical advice for athletes; what to eat, what not to eat, when to eat it, myths, success stories, failure stories, etc. Definitely recommend it if you feel like nutrition is the missing link in your athleticism (and if you’re like me then it probably is).
The alumni event today (Plaidurday) went great and I’m already planning out my adventure for this coming weekend: Mt Isolation. I’ll be leaving the plaid at home in favor of techwik and gortex.
