FAVORITE GU PRODUCT: Energy Stroopwafel

FAVORITE ENERGY GEL FLAVOR: ROCTANE Chocolate Coconut­­

FAVORITE NUTRITION HACK
Keep Energy Gels/Chews/Stroopwafels everywhere...literally. I always have at least 2 or 3 in my desk drawer at work, in my car glove box, in my purse, in my gym bag...this way I am always prepared for an impromptu workout opportunity!

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I love testing myself.  Seeing what my limit is and if I can surpass that the next time because you just never know what race could be your last.  I've had some pretty serious injuries that certainly could have side-lined me forever but I'm still here competing and my appreciation for that keeps me going.

WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT?
My most recent GU moment was with the release of the new ROCTANE Recovery mix. I feel like I'm recovering better and coming back stronger then ever before! I can't wait to try it after my first race of the 2020!
