07.31.2019 - By Run to the Top Podcast | The Ultimate Guide to Running
A recent article in Seasons Magazine featured the incredible story of UCAN, a SuperStarch® for athletes that started from a life threatening illness that threatened a baby’s survival. Follow this story from its inception as a life-saving nutrient to its evolution as a power drink that Meb Keflezighi, Dathan Rytzenheim, and many top athletes rely on. We are now in part 2 of this amazing story that has, up to this point, introduced our listeners to Wendy Feldman, Shoba Murali, and Meb Keflezighi whose lives have been intricately intertwined by Team UCAN. In this episode, we talk with Krista Austin, a sports scientist who has been connected with UCAN from the start. She was Meb's sports scientist back in 2009 and was the one who first worked with him to try UCAN in his training. She also introduced the product to Olympian Dathan Ritzenhein in 2014.
