Joe Frank was chosen to be a Navy Seal candidate and was in Seal training in 2007 when he was hit head-on by a drunk driver. He would spend the next several months in a wheelchair with two broken legs. During that time he remembered how much he missed being an athlete. Fast forward to 2018 and Frank is in full training as a professional distance cyclist. On June 12th he will begin the sports most challenging event, The Race Across America. Staring in Oceanside and spanning 3,000 miles until the finish in Annapolis, Maryland, the San Diegan will use Vitalyte along the way to keep him fueled.
Congratulations to all of these athletes who excel both on and off the field. Look for future stories on more of the athletes who use Vitalyte.
