FAVORITE NUTRITION HACK
Take your Chews and cut the package in half down the middle so you have four pieces in both sides. Makes them easier to pull out of your pocket and eat. Especially while racing.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I love having something to work towards especially when doing the work is so fun and enables you to spend so much time outside. On top of that I still haven't found anything better than that feeling of crossing the finish line run first place.

WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT?
Let's just say I had a moment at Lost & Found Gravel Race a few years back where I wasn't fueling with GU....I cramped horrifically and had to get off my bike to shake out the legs. Obviously I didn't win the race that day. Ever since then I've packed plenty of GU electrolyte capsules and eat a few an hour and have never had that problem again.
