Ultra Trail Runner
Best thing about VFuel:
It’s easy to digest and the Cool Citrus flavour is marvellous.
I ran my first ultra (50k) late in 2012 to test my fitness after a long summer of backpacking and some trail running. Fairing well, I decided to sign up for a string of ultras in 2013, beginning with a 50 miler in May. I was hooked. I enjoyed the light and fast style of moving through the mountains, as well as the feelings of vulnerability and empowerment that arise when immersed in the raw and rugged landscape with little more than a water bottle and some VFuel gels.
Butter/Ice cream (not simultaneously, but it’s not a bad idea!)
Skiing, Biking, Hiking, Reading, Pickin’ the guitar
Favorite recovery meal:
Sweet potato and veggie/egg burrito
Favorite trail running/running memory:
Any of the many moments when Im out an about under the sunshine, breathing in fresh air and moving to the rythms of the trail.
