I’m excited to be a part of the Trisports.com Champions Team this year! Trisports is a great website with everything Swim-Bike-Run! They’ve got everything from bikes to wetsuits and everything in between. If you are looking for anything from running shoes to cold weather clothes, check them out! (Update: Trisports has announced they are closing their doors any day now. Head on over to pick up some great clearance deals while you still can, and read more about their sad announcement here)
I’m spending the 2017 season in the Brooks Launch 3! I spent most of 2016 bouncing around in a few different brands shoe and never really found one that worked quite right. I even had some horrible blisters on my heel after the last race of the season! Then in stepped Brooks Running. I have been in the Launch 3 since my 2016 season ended and I am loving them! Hop on over to Brooks and try out their shoe finder to find the shoes that work best for you!
This year I am partnering with Honey Stinger for my nutrition in training and racing. I’ve been impressed with Honey Stinger’s products and I am looking forward to the edge they will give me in 2017. I’ve always been a proponent of simple nutrition. I like food that is simple and not overly complex. Super processed nutrition and hydration has always been hard on my stomach. Honey Stinger’s products are all honey based (obviously) making it real, simple, and easy to absorb. I’ve had the most experience with Honey Stinger gels (the classic gold with 95% honey), especially on the run course at the OBX Tri, and the waffles. Honestly, there is no better snack than a stroopwafel! I love them!
