David’s fondest race memory took place at the 2013 Padden Triathlon. It was one of those races where everything came together, the best part of which was hearing the local cheers from Bellingham friends, and finishing just under the previous course record, which currently stands as the CR at the event.

Hammer Nutrition – “Hammer Heed is my go-to nutritional drink prior to short runs or workouts, and in water bottles for bike rides under 90 minutes. Following interval workouts, I use Recoverite to help rebuild muscle tissue and reduce exercise soreness. Endurolyte Fizz is a great tasting product that helps with cramp prevention when used before exercise sessions in hot weather.”
