Hey, I'm Kristy!

Kristy Baumann, RDN

I am a 12x marathon runner, mom, and carb lover. I've been where you are. For the longest time, I thought I was fueling properly for race day -- even after becoming a dietitian. Except, I would struggle to keep my pace, always get muscle cramps, and experience GI issues on race day. I thought carbohydrate loading was eating a large pasta dinner the night before the race and staying hydrated was just about drinking water. But, I was missing one of the most powerful tools as a runner - a proper fueling strategy. Since making changes, it has transformed my running. Now I help other runners learn how to properly fuel so they no longer 'hit the wall', or experience cramping, or GI issues on race day.
