I’m excited to announce that I have been selected for the 2017 UltrAspire Immortal Ambassador Team! When I moved up to the 100 mile distance a few years ago I wasn’t happy with most of the hydration packs I had been using. They weren’t that comfortable and I knew comfort was going to be important, especially in the later miles of the race. Then I read about the Speedgoat waist pack. It was designed with input of ultra running legend Karl Meltzer. That was enough to pique my interest and give it try. After my first run with it I fell in love with the pack and became an UltrAspire fan.
These days I find myself using the Zygos race vest for my longer endeavors. It allows me to carry more water thanks to the reservoir and I can still carry a bottle in one of the front pockets with Tailwind in it for my electrolytes and calories. I still fall back to using the Speedgoat for shorter races when I don’t want to carry around the extra weight from a reservoir full of water.
I’m looking forward to representing UltrAspire in the coming year at races, in training and through my social media channels. It is a brand I use and a brand I trust.
