Our interview this week is with "The Nutrition Mechanic" Dina Griffin. Ladies, listen up - we are talking about some of the endurance considerations that are unique to the female athletes. Gents, don't tune out - no doubt you have a spouse, girlfriend or friends that this could impact. You should know this stuff and may want to share this interview with them. Plus, Dina has a talent that is unrelated to endurance sport that you are going to want to hear more about and hear later in the show.
Thanks to last week's guests, 3x Ironman World Champ Craig Alexander. We talked to Crowie about the SANSEGO Camp happening this weekend in Boulder. We'll also tell you who won the free entry into the camp a little later on. If you missed the interview, go back and check out Episode #129.
Dina Griffin Bio.
As a Sports Dietitian and athlete herself, Dina understands the many challenges that athletes encounter.

She will strategize with you to overcome obstacles, optimize all aspects of your nutrition, and meet or exceed your goals in a realistic and healthful manner.
Dina likes to ‘walk the talk’ and as such, is a competitive half marathon, marathon, and ultra runner, age group triathlete, and cyclist where she has earned top placement and age group wins in several events. For other leisure activities, she enjoys hiking, snowshoeing and open water swimming. Some notable athletic accomplishments and achievements include the Leadville 100 trail run, the Comrades ultra race in South Africa (earning a bronze medal), Ironman Coeur D’Alene (12:14 for her 1st IM in 2013), Boston Marathon (sub 3:25 finish), NYC Marathon (3:26 finish), the San Francisco North Face Endurance Run 50k, and the Mount Evans Hill Climb. She is also proud to have served as a guide for Diane Berberian at the ITU Paratriathlon World Championships in London in 2013.
