FAVORITE NUTRITION HACK
Should be a no brainer but... separate out caffeinated & non-caff gels. If I train up for a mega mission, I use exclusively non-caff in the month leading up to the event. Then during go time I start off with non-caff and save caffeine for the middle of the night (or better even, the start of the second night) when I will need it the most.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I love pushing myself and exploring both new places and what I am capable of.
WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT? ROCTANE ENERGY Drink Mix! On the Aiguille du Chardonnet, an 18hr climb which knife-edge ridges and terrible snow conditions galore. We did not want to stop to take packs off and eat for 8+hrs, but had ROCTANE Drink Mix in our bladders -- that saved the day.
