Dirtbag Diets: Cat Bradley

Dirtbag Runners encompass a wide variety of people from all over the country–heck, even all over the world. Some like to call themselves vegetarians or vegans, while others go by the paleo or caveman diet. Others prefer carbs above all else, specifically of the pastry variety. Despite our varied diets, we still share one thing in common: we’re Dirtbags and we love it.


Cat’s Food Philosophy: Be flexible; don’t let what you eat control your life!

What do you emphasize in your personal diet? I was a vegetarian for a long time, but I don’t like restrictions anymore. I eat anything.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with peanut butter, maple syrup and salt.

Lunch: Tortilla chips with hummus and salsa; I’m more of a snacker.

Dinner: Pancakes and eggs or a sandwich with extra bread.


Don’t forget the cake!

What do you eat or drink during training runs? Depends on how long I’m running. I don’t bring anything if it’s under two hours or less, other than a 20 oz. handheld water bottle. For longer runs I’ll do gels.

What do you eat during a race? Mostly gels. I prefer honey stingers and V-fuels, totaling 300 calories per hour.


Cat, getting her fueling on.

Favorite drink: Water…and beer! Everyone loves beer.

Favorite food: Sushi and cinnamon rolls.



Favorite post-race meal: Pizza! I’m lactose intolerant so I only have pizza after a race.

    LOL Glad I’m not the only one that eats like that… I tell so many people what I typically eat and most people start off with “What else? I mean, where is the filling stuff?”
