By request, some ideas about alternative nutrition for long-distance athletes.  CrossFitters do tend to need a certain amount of clean carbs to perform well (it's glycolytic work) but long-distance work can be very efficiently fueled with fat.

Thanks for the info Vanessa-I look forward to checking out these resources and hopefully noticing a difference in my performance with some cleaner "fuel". (giant rice krispie treats and Haribo dinosaurs are delicious....but I hope other options will help me feel stronger and more energetic)
