Have you ever bonked on a race and want to know how to avoid GI problems with running?

Do you want to know what causes fatigue with running?

Would you like more energy for your runs?

UCAN have energy for running and you don't have to bonk during your next event.  

In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Matt Bach, Director of Endurance Athletics at UCAN and he shared his own personal experience as Ironman champion and the origin story of the brand and products you know so well!

In this episode, Matt shares with you:

- What gives us energy for running?

- What causes fatigue when running or hitting the wall?

- What does running do to your stomach?

- How do we avoid GI problems while running?

- What is UCAN and where did superstarch come from?

- What is different about superstarch?

- The role of electrolytes in the “energy equation”

- How Matt got rid of his injuries with physical therapy and strengthening exercises.
