Just say NO to salt tabs...with OSMO Pre-Load! Friend and wicked smart Dr. Stacy Sims is the brains behind this amazing product that will keep you hydrated in hot weather. Los Cabos where I won the AG and was 2nd OA Amateur? Powered by Pre-Load for sure...one bottle the night before and then another in the morning before a hot long race or hot, long anything...ride, run, day at the beach sipping marg's... Speaking of marg's, pre-load IS salt after all so don't expect it to taste like coke. This stuff will keep you hydrated without the normal post race swell that is brought on by salt tabs and the like...I love me a 5lb weight gain and all, but who likes to remember ANOTHER thing to do while racing?

Stop: Recovery Time...Ever sit on the couch with bags of peas on your legs or in an ice bath, wishing you could do the dishes/laundry/cook dinner WHILE you were icing your gams after a long day at the office of SBR? I was lucky this season to receive goodies from 110% Playharder. These guys make life easy...compression? Check! Slots for ice integrated into these compression garments? Double check!! My fave, is the aptly named, "clutch" tight. You can put ice on your lower back/calves/hamstrings...any part of your leg that may be screaming for mercy can be icily compressed into submission.

I have been living in these team kits for the better part of three years. They keep me from needing to "double bag" my girls, keep my thighs chafe free, and my undercarriage as happy as possible over the journey of 140.6 miles.
Friends, Family, and Sponsors. This list of people deserves their own post. They train with me, keep me sane and support me in an enormous way and that makes my world a pretty awesome place to be. So to all of you, I am grateful!!
