Speaker: Claire Shorenstein MS, RD, CDN
Claire Shorenstein (MS, RD, CDN) is a Manhattan-based Sports Dietitian and Road Runners Club of America certified running coach. She holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and received her clinical training at Montefiore Medical Center, where she continued to work as an inpatient dietitian for several years before founding her virtual private practice, Eat for Endurance. She also hosts the Eat for Endurance Podcast, which strives to demonstrate through Athlete Nutrition Profiles, solo episodes, and interviews with fellow RDs that there are many different, successful pathways towards optimal health and sports performance.
Claire herself is an avid runner, and has competed in numerous solo and team events from the 5km to 50-mile distance over the last 20+ years. Her experience as a runner, coach, and dietitian allows her to understand the athlete mentality, the crucial role that nutrition plays in preventing and recovering from injury, and how to help individuals safely attain their health and fitness objectives. Furthermore, as a mother of two young girls (1 and 3), Claire understands the needs of pregnant and postpartum women as well as the challenges of being a working parent. It is a constant and ever-changing balancing act for each of us, finding the time to grocery shop, prepare food, exercise, and spend time with family and friends, all while working and trying to get enough sleep. It may feel impossible to find a balance between these things because, let's be honest, it often is. Something is usually sacrificed, and that something often is diet, exercise and/or sleep. Claire strives to help her clients prioritize their time and guide them towards making small but significant changes to get them on a path towards better physical and mental health!
