Exploring what it takes to become an ultra endurance athlete

Blood Type

Two primary benefits of knowing my blood type for distance running are being able to eat according to my blood type, and to have that information listed on a (soon to be purchased) Road ID bracelet for emergency first responders. I bought an EldonCard Home Blood Type Kit from Amazon, followed the basic instructions and within a few short minutes, found out my blood type! I know that you can find this information out for free by donating blood, but I have a disorder called Meniere’s Disease that includes severe bouts of dizziness and vertigo, which has led me to passing out (in a bad way) when donating in the past. So this was a much better option for me.
