Natasha Hastings, Olympic gold medalist and track-and-field sprinter, swears by good old traditional granola bars before a race. "I keep those and dry fruits close by on competition days when my eating schedule is kind of funny." Another tip she takes with her? Be a minimalist when you travel. "I'm the carry-on queen...I've done a month in Europe with just a carry-on bag. My boyfriend and I have a joke when we travel to see who can get through the security line faster." Looks like competition doesn't have to only be on the track!
"Everyone has days when they don't want to work out. What keeps me going is knowing that while I'm in bed my competitors are out there getting better. That's my reminder."
