2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifier, PhD Candidate
Jocelyn Todd is an elite marathoner from St. Louis, MO currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is a graduate of the University of Iowa and ran for both Iowa and the University of Utah. She is currently working towards her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Utah. For her dissertation research, she analyzes the mechanics of cartilage in the hip with computational modeling. Jocelyn’s transition to marathon has been natural, since her favorite workout has always been the long run. She qualified for the Olympic Trials in 2018 at Grandma’s Marathon with a personal record of 2:39:23, which she has since bested. In her free time she likes being outdoors with friends and baking.
When I tested UCAN, the results spoke for themselves. In my third marathon, I ran a 9-minute PR over my previous best and felt so strong throughout the entire race. I also didn’t feel completely depleted in the weeks after the marathon and could get back to a normal eating and training pattern in just a few days. I have since continued using UCAN in my training, honed my fueling routine, and my body has become more adapted to utilizing the energy. In my fourth and most recent marathon, I improved to hit the Olympic Trials A Standard in 2:36. I use UCAN daily for all my runs – from easy recovery days to workouts and long runs – and it has helped tremendously to ensure consistent and balanced fuel for my training.
