A Look Back To Look Ahead
The end of the year, and particularly the end of a decade, is a perfect time to step back and reflect on all that has changed in your life, all that you’ve accomplished, and everything you’ve learned. For us? 10 years ago, we were a teenage company that had just launched the first version of our ROCTANE Energy Drink Mix. Over the past ten years, we’ve created 29 new Energy Gel and ROCTANE Energy Gel flavors, and along the way, we’ve supported the protection of public lands with the Conservation Alliance, supported athletes through the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and inspired kids to get on bikes with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association. We’ve helped fuel countless PRs and podium finishes, and we’re incredibly proud of everything our community of endurance athletes have accomplished.
As this decade comes to a close, we wanted to check in with some of our pro athletes to find out what they’re most proud of and let them reflect on the past ten years.
What accomplishment are you most proud of from the last ten years? How have you changed and grown over the last decade?
My biggest accomplishment the past decade was overcoming what should have been a career ending injury the summer of 2017 to win the Leadville 100M just over a year later. Undoubtedly, it was the most meaningful race of my life.
