The Gear Show with Lisa Gerber
About This Show
Stories of achievement and creativity from the outdoors to help you gear up mentally and/or physically for your next big leap - for those of us who aspire to something more, and struggle daily with balancing ambition with happiness.
More than the specific gear or activity, the discussions involve pushing ourselves to be better. To do so, we have to tackle fear, our monkey brain. We have to set ourselves up for success and to make ideas happen. But most of all, we have to be able to adjust when life takes us on a different path than our dreams.
Listen, learn, and lets gear up for what’s next:

38: Meredith Terranova on Eating Smarter for Better Performance
7 days ago
My favorite subject, food! is on the docket for today. The last time I did a big race which for me is 25k trail mountain run, I posted on instagram (are you following me on instagram by the way?) a photo of my favorite recovery meal - Hammer Nutrition Recoverite drink, strawberry flavored, and cheddar cheese flavored Kettle Chips. Today, we’ll learn why that’s not such an awesome idea, in case you thought it was. Meredith is a sports nutritionist and an ultra athlete, in fact she competes in the Ultra Man in November - essentially a three day double ironman. Day 1 is a 10k swim and 91 mile bike, day 2 is 170 mile bike and day 3 is a double marathon. That’s over 52 miles of running on the last day. She has a lot of great advice for those of us aspiring to improve performance or simply feel better. Time management for training is a big one. She shares her system that she and her husband have found work well for them. It’s like having a baby and you need to divvy up the chores. Lastly, she walks us through an approach to finding what works for you - throw those fad diets out the door - and how to think about nutrition during different phases of your training. With that, let’s listen in and gear up for what’s next Resources: Organic Valley Fuel First Endurance Ultragen Where to find Meredith: Website Facebook
