Jen, I love this blog idea!!
Hello everyone, my name is Heather Shenkman. I'm a 32 year-old cardiologist living in Los Angeles. I've been doing triathlons for a little over two years. I have a blog called VeganHeartDoc, where I talk about medicine, heart disease, vegan diets, and my triathlon training.
My goal for this year is to complete my first half-ironman race, Vineman 70.3 on July 20, 2008. Yesterday, I ran the City of Angels Half Marathon.
So here's the first question for the blog: For longer distance races, do any of you have any suggestions of how to keep from getting gastrointestinal upset during the race? Yesterday my stomach felt awful halfway through the race and even for the four or five hours after finishing. Ideas??? I would hate for this to happen during my 70.3.
