We decided to undertake a major challenge… to create a product for those times when you have nothing left to give and making another step forward is beyond possible.
For this challenge, we teamed up with Cody Reed himself. He is known for being able to dig really deep! He is able to submerge in pain for hours. His hard work, commitment, and determination are the key to his success. However, all proves not enough to succeed without on point super nutrition.
The most challenging moment?
At mile 55 of Western States I was coming into Michigan Flat Aid Station after having to run through two back-to-back canyons over the last 15 miles. It was the hottest and hardest part of the course and I remember wondering how I was going to do that again, how was I supposed to go another 50 miles if I felt the way I did now? The people at the aid station saw me coming in, dragging my feet up the trail and thought there was no way I was going to be able to finish. I needed more water and food. I started eating Nutella sandwiches and downing more Spring before I left the aid station. The next few miles to the following aid station were hard to run. They were slow and mentally challenging. These 15 miles of single track trails, hot canyons, and dirt roads was the most physically and mentally difficult part of any race I’ve run.
