Madeline Kramer Eats Well And Rests Well

Madeline Kramer works full time, runs plenty, and still finds time to eat well and rest well. Kramer shares what a typical day look like for her, including what she eats and when, how she stays healthy, and who will be in Houston screaming her name along the course.
Runners Feed: Take us through a typical day of your life

Madeline Kramer: Wake up between 6 and 7 – immediately go out for at least an hour run (depending on my training schedule); eat breakfast – usually a bowl of oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, and almond butter; go into work around 9; work until lunch – usually eat a sandwich, soup or salad or leftovers; work until 5:30ish; go home to prepare dinner – usually a lean, white meat with a starch (sweet potato or bread) and veggies (salad or grilled veggies) or a burrito; either have a class for seminary, a bible study, or a program for my High School students; go to bed between 11 and midnight. Throughout the day I will snack on fruits and nuts, and I will usually throw a sweet or two in there. Tuesdays look different from this schedule because I run in the morning for 30 minutes and then have practice at night. I talk with my family on the phone a few times throughout the week – usually in the evenings. My work week goes from Sunday to Thursday – due to the fact that I work at a church. I spend time with my friends mostly on the weekends.

RF: Do you work full or part-time while training? If so, what do you do? If not, what has kept you afloat while you pursue your dream?

MK: I work full-time as a High School Ministry Coordinator at First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley – basically a youth pastor.

RF: What do you do on a regular basis to make sure you toe the line healthy? 

MK: I am probably the worst person to ask this question to…I really just run a lot (65-70 mi not training and 80-90 mi training), stretch after my runs, do abs 3 times a week, and take calcium, vit D, MSM, and glucosamine. I will take the occasional ice bath and if I am injured I will ice the injury at least 1 time a day. I have gotten a few massages in my past. Other than that, I just eat well and rest well.

Rapid Fire

RF:  My onsite support team will include…

MK: My Impala teammates and my mom.

RF: How will you be decorating your bottles to make them easily recognizable?

MK: I will not be using my own bottles.
