I’m super fortunate to have a few great sponsors. These are primarily ambassador relationships, where most of what I receive is discounted product. But I love and would likely be sharing their goodness otherwise!
I’ve been on the Coeur Sports Ambassador team since 2015 and love this great group of ladies! Coeur makes triathlon apparel (and are getting into the run game!), and their triathlon kits are the comfiest and most flattering I’ve been in!
If you have a little tummy, or you have issues with chafing in the chamois areas, try out Coeur’s triathlon kits this season!
Last season I switched from using gels to fuel me to using sources of fuel that wouldn’t spike my blood sugar. I made my own protein balls for the bike ride, but found that chews were great for the run. I love the Honey Stinger Chews because they have the best texture and flavors, and are low enough in sugar for me. My favorite flavor is the Cherry Cola, although I’ve been branching out and like Limeade too. I take two or three every 2-3 miles on longer runs, depending on how I’m feeling. I’ve started exploring and enjoying their waffles – they are a nice quick snack before a long run. I’m proud to be a Honey Stinger Ambassador, and get a product discount.
Let’s just say without ShowerPill I’d be much stinkier. During Ironman training, almost every weekend I’d leave town to ride out in Wisconsin or the Chicago suburbs, and before getting back in the car for the ride home (or after a race), I’d wipe off with a ShowerPill (and change into clean clothes). When you can’t shower, but you’ve been sweating, this is such a good thing.
Sponsorships I wish I had
Footwear. Apart from my bike, this is probably the next biggest expense on a consistent basis. (Do you replace your shoes every 300-500 miles?) I wear mostly Saucony, so that’d probably make sense.
Time/Income. I’d LOVE to train full time but that’s not the reality. But if anyone wants to pay me to run, be a triathlete, or anything, let me know!
What would your dream sponsorship be?
