Ep. 129: Tart Cherry Juice/Jen Rulon

In this episode:

Tart cherry juice was all the rage at the Vuelta a Espana last month. Is there any evidence to support its use and if so, what are the benefits of using it? Coach Juliet Hochman and I look at this beverage in the Medical Mailbag. Plus, an interview with Coach Jen Rulon. A former multiple time Ironman athlete, Jen has slowed down and is living large in beautiful Costa Rica where she continues with her coaching business but has embraced a more laid back approach to her life and focuses on strength training and mindset. Hear her philosophy and what else she is doing in our conversation.

Jen Rulon has been a triathlon/fitness coach for 22+ years and owns JenRulon.com. She received her Master's Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science. Her knowledge as an author and speaker includes Triathlete Magazine, Runners World, on the TED Stage and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Commencement Speaker, Men's Journal Online, "Self Motivation Strategies for Women," (Amazon), and the New York Times. Jen practiced what she preached-she's a 15× Ironman Triathlete who qualified and participated in the World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, on October 14, 2017. Jen is "retired" from the sport of triathlon as an athlete but still coaches athletes worldwide and lives a life of abundance, strength training, walks, and catching the sunsets in Costa Rica.
