The summer is winding down, and before you know it cross-country season will be upon us. But before that, we still have the excitement of the Olympics and rooting on Team USA. As we get ready to watch Shalane Flanagan compete in her fourth Olympics, we're bringing you a sneak-peek recipe from her new cookbook Run Fast Eat Slow: Shalane's Ultimate Burger. She and chef/nutritionist Elyse Kopecky showed our Joe Battaglia how to make these burgers (watch video) and the recipe along with the prediction contest can be found below.
While training at high altitude, Shalane finds herself craving red meat. Running 100+ miles per week at 7,000 feet means her body needs an iron-rich kick.
Run Fast Eat Slow: Nourishing Recipes for Athletes is almost here! The countdown to our August 9th launch begins. You can preorder your own copy to get it faster, and FloTrack and MileSplit have two ways for you to win cool prizes.
Our prediction contest: Guess Shalane Flanagan's finish time in the Rio Olympic Marathon. The person who guesses closest to the actual time will win an autographed copy of Run Fast Eat Slow: Nourishing Recipes for Athletes.
Attention teams: If you preorder 12 or more copies of Run Fast Eat Slow: Nourishing Recipes for Athletes, you will be entered to win a training session and private cooking class for you and your teammates led by Shalane and Elyse in your hometown! Details on how to bulk order can be found in the image above. Be sure to mention FloTrack and MileSplit in your order.
