XNRG's head coach Andy Mouncey on the importance of food as fuel
It became increasingly apparent as I picked through the wreckage in the aftermath of my DNF at The Spine Race in January 2014 that while mine is most of the time, there have also been regular occasions when it just isn’t.

Four other things have happened since then to shake this cozily constructed belief:
I created and applied a new reviewing template that caused me to see my Spine Race attempt differently
The final content for my new book ‘So You Want To Run An Ultra’ was the food-fuel section, and that research gave me pause for thought
I was poked and prodded on this subject by my audience at Keswick Mountain Festival recently and that forced me to check my answers in a very public way
