The Daily Peloton is pleased to feature a number of excellent endurance and nutrition articles by distinguished nutritionist Dr. Bill Misner, known as Dr. Bill. 


Dr. Bill Misner is employed fulltime by E-CAPS Inc. & Hammer Nutrition Ltd. Misner is a Ph.D. nutritionist who helps athletes better understand and get the most from their body through diet and supplement protocols. Dr. William Misner has been associated with E-CAPS almost since day one. He started out as a customer in late 1987, became a sponsored athlete in 1990 and eventually became part of the E-CAPS R&D team.


Misner graduated from Indiana University in 1962 with a degree in physical education (athletic training) and English. Between 1983-1995, Misner attended to graduate studies at Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University, and the American Holistic College of Nutrition. In 1996, he received his doctorate with high honors in Holistic Nutrition.


During this study, volumes of data on training, diet, and nutrition were employed to enhance his own personal performance bests. Dr. Bill is more than just a scientist, he is a world class masters athlete as well. As a runner, he has twice qualified for and finished the Boston Marathon, set 8 masters course records, two American age group records, won the Masters National [age group] 50-Mile Run Championships in 1989 and 1991, then was a member of the USA National Championship 1992 4 X 800 Meter Relay team in track and field.


As a convert to cycling, He won the Washington State Masters Road Race Titles in 1994 and 1995, the 1995 USCF REGIONAL Masters Championship and the Washington State Hill Climb Time Trial in 1996. With the appeal of longer distance solo time trials, Misner has achieved 18 Perimeter Bicycling Association's "World Records" from 1999-2001 and is currently ranked 26th among PBAA's top 87 riders. Ranking is achieved by riding at least 50 miles around an approved PBAA course objective.


 Dr. Bill believes it is possible to overcome training plateaus, bonking, or failure to achieve a personal best through natural dietary interventions and old fashioned hard work with periodic recovery rest periods. His passion is to also help other athletes approach or reach their upper performance limit, with the hopes that they may then experience going beyond those limits.
