“I have been an athlete since I was a small child.  I have played many sports but have always loved running the most.  As an adult I re-found that passion but in ways I never thought possible.  Not only do I love short distances but longer ones as well.  In the past few years I have fallen in love with obstacle course racing and also finding the strength to make fitness a profession.  I have a lot to learn as an athlete and a coach in our ever changing world of sports pushing us to be stronger, faster and become our best selves.   Most of my goals for 2018 were met and I set some lofty goals 2019 but I wouldn’t have it any other way.   Do what you love and love what you do <3”

Why Skout: Skout works for me because of the clean, simple ingredients. They are light and perfect on the go. I don't have to worry about any gastric distress during the event because of the ingredients.

Fav Product: Dark chocolate cherry and Washington apple cinnamon because they are the perfect snack size for events and are kind to your system.
