Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project is to develop nutrition resources aimed at optimizing energy status in male and female elite collegiate endurance runners. Specifically, this project includes personalized meal plans and a post-workout meal suggestion matrix that will be featured within a goal-based smartphone app called “Run Fueled.” A Formative Evaluation Survey was conducted. An expert panel of three Registered Dietitians completed the survey, and their opinions were determined using a 5-point Likert scale. Overall, the expert panel tended to agree with the specific evaluation items, indicating that the nutrition resources were appropriate and useful for the intended audience. In the future, a research project or qualitative assessment may be conducted on the endurance runners using “Run Fueled” to determine the effectiveness of the nutrition resources.
