Team Zoot GU!

A few months ago I learned that Zoot and GU where teaming up and they where going to put together a team of age-groupers as “brand ambassador”, Team Zoot GU. I found the website and completed the application form, this took a little soul searching, they wanted to know why they should choose me, what races I’ve completed, what challenges lie ahead and how I can give back to our community. This is where I had a hard time, what can I do to give back, I’ve taken a lot, maybe more than my share times. I have a bunch of ideas, and I will share them with you at a later time. But one I can let you in on, my daughter’s elementary school has a running club, and I want to volunteer my time and do all I can to help. How cool is that?

I am happy to accept their offer, I’ve been using GU for years and I find it to be the best product on the market (Espresso Love is my favorite). Zoot, I’ve known about the product for years but never owned anything before. I’ve drooled all over the keyboard many times, and now I get to own and even better review their products.

Snippet from their letter:
“We are eager to kick off the inaugural year of our co-sponsored triathlon team, and we are equally thrilled to extend an invitation to you to join the ranks of 300 specially selected men and women nationwide who will initiate this exciting venture. You have been chosen from a field of several hundred applicants due to your accomplishments, goals and enthusiasm in the sport of triathlon and in the multi-sport community as a whole. We welcome you as a brand ambassador and are proud to support you throughout your upcoming season!”

See ya on the road,

Thats great!! Ive been reading your blog. Only have been running but trying to get into crosstraining and using triathlons as a good motivator. Also from Georgia and live in Peachtree City. Need some advice on swimming since this tends to be the most weakest of the sports for me.
