One of our clients and author, Russell Newell, tackled Ironman Triathlon training with our nutritional support and wrote about it in his latest book: IRONDAD LIFE: A Year of Bad Decisions and Questionable Motives - What I Learned on the Quest to Conquer Ironman Lake Placid

It's a witty and entertaining look at his training and race experience, and working to be a great family man in the process. We love that he took the time to include his nutritional journey with us as a chapter. Go buy the book and enjoy a read about fitness, lifestyle, training, nutrition and all the ups and downs and hilarity that come with it.

Congratulations Russell on the book launch and on your amazing results working with SoMoved Nutrition!

Summary from Amazon: Why do people race in Ironmans - a competition that was dreamed up by a US Navy Officer after a beer-influenced debate over who were the fittest athletes - swimmers, cyclists, or runners? Only a person whose good sense was severely impaired would decide to do a race marked by such agony and suffering - a race that makes no sense to normal people.

What type of person (lunatic) goes to bed at 9:00 p.m. and wakes up at 4:00 a.m. every

day for 12 months, eliminates every fun thing to eat and drink, incurs thousands of death stares from an angry spouse, and spends a minimum of 10,000 dollars...all to put their body through a 17-hour torture chamber during which a potpourri of exciting, physiological wonders - such as dehydration, fuel supply shortages, oxidative stress, muscle damage, brain fatigue, and overheating - occur, causing the body to age by 20 years?

Russell Newell would find out when he signed up for the second oldest Ironman in the country: Lake Placid, in the idyllic Upstate New York village nestled in the Adirondacks that twice hosted the Winter Olympics. Russell would then question his sanity and test his resolve as he attempted to finish the 2018 Ironman Lake Placid...
