WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I love the mental and physical game of running 100 miles on trail. So much can go right or wrong in an event. There is a special type of suffering in the last 20% of a 100 that is unlike any other feeling. That feeling of succeeding and suffering simultaneously in the ladder of 100's motivates me.
WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT?
In 2019, I strung together three 100 mile races: Western States, Javelina Jundred, and Brazos Bend. During these three events, I pivot between three mediums of GU products: ROCTANE Gels, ROCTANE Energy Drink, and Stroopwafels. I always ingest 300 calories GU product and 50-100 calories of fruit/chips per hour in 100 mile races. In the last 6 hours of Javelina and Brazos Bend, I ingested solely ROCTANE Energy Drink and fruit.
