Evan Jager needs no introduction. He’s the American record holder in the 3K steeplechase, a 4-time World Championship participant, 2-time Olympian, and has won both a World Championship bronze medal and an Olympic silver medal.
Even when I was a professional track and field athlete, I always took a very simple approach to fueling for workouts and competitions. I ate things that were healthy and easy for me to get down. I’d find what worked for me and would listen to my body. I don’t have a sensitive stomach and used to swear I could put back a burger and fries 30 minutes before competing.
