To keep two-time silver medalist and track-and-field sprinter Allyson Felix on her toes, she hits the kitchen for grilled fish, chicken, and veggies on top of heaps of pasta. "My go-to snacks are pretty basic -- almonds, cashews, and grapes," Felix says. "Though I do love ice cream, Ben and Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk is my favorite!" To stay tuned up on the road Felix spends her time in the air sleeping as much as possible. "It helps me adjust to the new time zone once we land."
"I focus on my competitors and what they're doing. I can't slack off, I have to be on top of my game. I'm always thinking about my goals."
