The Trail Mix Trials

Help Needed to Cross the Finish Line

Sunday can’t come soon enough.  Unlimited trail mix is in my future.

Why?  It is the day of the Mission Bay Triathlon, 09mblogoand we’re participating.

Since on this day, all things will come in threes, I am asking you to help me cross the finish line by suggesting power-packed trail mix ingredients – three of them.

As I transition from swim to bike, and bike to run, rather than consuming Gu or Power Bars, I will chomp down your recommendations for sustained fuel. 

So what are your three favorite trail mix ingredients?  Let me know, I’ll make it, eat it and report back on how these triathlon trials go.

    chocolate chips – for that quick sugar you need before those pretzels break down and do you good, plus they’re tasty!

    have fun, drink lots of powerade/gatorade or take shotbloks with your yummy trail mixes for those much needed electrolytes!!!
