I am training for a duathlon in October, ice climbing season, and the triathlon next year but am having some difficulty maintaining energy levels...so just wondering if there are actually any triathletes on this site that are staying raw?

hmmm, many raw runners and weight training but Tri's I do not think I have seen any here ! I would think that the triathlete would be facing similar energy issues as someone running a marathon right ?

He's not on this board but Brendan Brazier is high raw.

I would love to do a triathlon. I ran my first marathon earlier this year (hardest thing I've ever done), but I felt amazing afterwards. It's given me the motivation to try other athletic things...got back into swimming, went rock climbing. They are having a triathlon near me this month that is canoeing, mountain biking, and trail running. I think that would be a lot of fun; wish I had found out about it sooner.
I worried about keeping my energy up, too, during the marathon, and I did hit the wall, but I don't know if it was related to being raw or not. I ate fresh fruit during the run, but I became nauseous after a while and couldn't eat anything. Green smoothies really helped with my energy levels while I was training.
