Bring Your Appetite to Primal Quest Montana

If you're going to try to complete an adventure race like Primal Quest, it's a good idea to have specific plans. Two of the most important things to plan are hydration -- what you're going to drink, and nutrition -- what you're going to eat. Members of adventure racing team Merrell/Zanfell Adventure spent the days before Primal Quest packing their food into separate bags for each 24-hour period of the expedition. Then those seven bags went into one large bag for each athlete. The photo above shows the foods team captain Robyn Benincasa selected for her Primal Quest experience. Imagine all of that going into one person. Eww. Nutrition ain't pretty, but it beats the alternative -- the horrific bonk.

Hi Dale! Welcome to Blogger! No, I don't recall seeing any veggie scrambler in there. But Robyn did have my favorite food in all the world in several of her smaller bags -- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Yum!
