  • Brand Ambassador Update: Michael Drackert at the Fat Tire Off Road Duathlon

    Vitalyte's Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert at the Fat Tire Off Road Duathlon

    Vitalyte's Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert finished first overall at the Fat Tire Off Road Duathlon in Lawrence, Kansas. The race was a fast two mile trail run followed by a ten mile mountain bike. For our super star multi sport athlete these were considered "short distances, but full gas speed the whole time!" Michael fueled for his tough off road event with Vitalyte's Tri Phase pre workout energy drink for endurance athletes. The long burning carbohydrate source in Tri Phase gave Michael enough energy to power him through fifty four minutes of twists and turns on the course. As our athlete representative put it himself, it was "crucial to be topped up before" energy wise for such an intense event. "Tri Phase drink prior to the start gave me all the energy I needed to go for the win!"

    Updates on Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert

    I received an unexpected free race entry to the Goundhog 10K. The whole route is located in underground storage caverns. While the outside temperature was below freezing, it was a warm 65 F in the caverns. I raced well on minimal training as I'm coming out of an off season. Not my fastest 10K, but I finished in the top 20 out of +1,000 people.

    brand ambassador Michael Drackert runningSpent a week in Hawaii for vacation. I got in touch with the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team for some trail running recommendations. Needless to say, the trails did not let me down. It was absolutely beautiful. I used the Tri-Phase endurance fuel pre runs and one packet of the Electrolyte Replacement for a couple long runs, including a tough 15 miler with close to 4,000 feet elevation gain.

    Training is ramping up with about 10 hours per week spread across the bike, run, and swim plus weight training. I'm frequently using the Complete Recovery for the amino acids as well as the chia bars. The rest of February includes a lot of base volume.
