I think everyone, from a stay at home mom, weekend warrior to elite athletes can benefit from supplementing with creatine.

Yet that is what I will do this November when I race the 140.6 mile Ironman Arizona. An Ironman consists of swimming 2.4 miles, followed by a 112 mile bike race and then the final leg running a 26.2 mile marathon.
