Klean Athlete Supplements

For the last several years proper nutrition has been an integral part of my success as an elite endurance athlete.   There are some great supplements labeled Klean Athlete which was introduced to me in 2014.  All of their supplements are free from any trace of substances on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned list.  Knowing the products I use have the NSF Certified for Sport mark, gives me confidence and peace of mind that I’m working with reputable companies who are truly interested in keeping me healthy and out of harms way.  I can trust that I’m not taking any chances with consuming anything that could potentially contain unsafe or banned substances knowing that the products undergo very stringent testing.  I take the following Klean Athlete products on a daily basis; Multivitamin, Omega, Vitamin D, Cognitive, and Probiotic.  During my training I’m using their other products; Endurance, Electrolytes, Recovery Drink, and Isolate (pure whey protein), and Hydration.

Topical Edge Performance & Recovery Lotion

The Best Sodium Bicarbonate Supplements for Athletes.  Topical Edge PR Lotion is a game changer!  I first started using TE in 2017 and noticed a positive difference it had with my training and racing.  I feel more in control of demanding workouts, get better results, and don’t feel trashed afterwards.  I love products like this that actually work and aren’t claimed to be something it’s not.  Every allotment of Topical Edge is tested for banned substances at an accredited lab under the Informed-Sport and Informed Choice programs.

Sterling Ridge Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

I was first introduced to Dr. Keith Johnson at SROSM after my first 100 mile when I was experiencing someknee issues most likely caused by the race and probably a result of overreaching in a training run too soon afterwards. His team of therapist have been excellent to work with and made sure I received the proper care needed to get back on my feet. I’m now a frequent visitor to their office, doing workouts on their amazing Alter-G treadmill, and getting great advice on strength building exercises that benefit my running.

Alternative Health Center of The Woodlands

The Alternative Health Center of The Woodlands is the best in town for treating local athletes, as well as visiting pros that come to town for training camps or the Ironman North American Championships.  Dr. Steve Clouthier understands the needs of endurance athletes and therefore able to recognize and address symptoms before they create problems.  In the past I would seek treatment after beating up my body which is counterproductive.  I now visit with Dr. Clouthier regularly so I’m able to train more consistently and perform at my full potential.  Some of the services offered include chiropractic, acupuncture, ART, cold laser therapy, electric stimulation, massages, and more.

Drymax Socks

I love these socks!!!  I’ve trained in rain, snow, hot and very humid conditions in Texas.  I sweat A LOT during the summer months and keeping my feet dry during training is much more comfortable and pleasant not that I wear Drymax.  I’ve enjoyed every run and haven’t experienced issues with blisters thanks to the moisture repelling technology.

Huma Gels

Hüma is a great tasting all-natural way to get the energy you need!   I’ve been extremely satisfied with Hüma energy gels as they are easy to consume, and settles well on my stomach.  I don’t do well with solid foods so I rely on gels to supply my body with the fuel I need to perform well and finish strong.   I’ve had some really good training runs and races using a variety of their flavors.  Hüma gels are made with evaporated cane juice plus brown sugar syrup, ground chia seeds, sea salt, citric acid, and 100% real fruit.
