FAVORITE GU PRODUCT: ROCTANE Energy Gel

FAVORITE ENERGY GEL FLAVOR: Blue Pom ROCTANE

FAVORITE NUTRITION HACK
I just learned that the Chew packs have one side that is easier opening that you can just squeeze out the chews from. Mind was blown! Oh, and also for a race with aid stations, use ROCTANE Drink mix for the first hour and a half and don't mix it with water until the first aid station so you don't have to carry all that water with you while you don't need it for the first 45 minUTES or so.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
Competition. I love competing against myself and mostly againsT others. I want to push myself and I find that I love the feeling of going through difficult and adverse experiences with others.

WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT?
My GU moment was accidentally having to use GU during a race when I was sponsored by another brand and having bad race after bad race. Then having to use GU for that 100k race and it going fantastic. It was that light bulb going off after the race and realizing it was all because I was using GU.
