I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help in preparing for the marathon yesterday. It was so great having a really clear plan from you for race day - I followed your advice to the letter, felt fantastic and finished the race! The heat was absolutely brutal - it topped out at 38 degrees - I think if I hadn't followed your plan I would have been like one of the poor people keeled over in the last 5km. So thanks again for helping me get over the finish line!

Hi Tom

Thanks again for the plan, it's going really well and I've noticed a huge difference eating and drinking the right things/amounts before, during and after training.  It's nice not having to worry about what I'm going to be doing nutrition wise next weekend. 
Tamara Pine - Routeburn Classic 2017

 Just wanted to say thanks very much for your advice over the last few months!
I followed the race day nutrition to the letter and shaved 33 mins off last year’s time in the Motatapu MTB event finishing in 3 hours 55 mins (sub 4 which was my goal).  The amounts you prescribed were perfect and with my training up to the event going much better with the nutrition package, I am stoked to have done much better than last year.
I’ll now have to find another challenge ;-)

Jo Guard - Motatapu Marathon 

Hi Tom

Thanks for the great advice. I finished the Routeburn in 5 hours 10mins. So was pretty pleased considering I haven’t done anything like this before. I felt like I had enough energy right to the end...
