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.
