Trail Runner Nation (hydration)
Ten years ago Jeff Vierling finished his first Leadville 100 mountain bike race despite having terrible GI issues. That marked the day that he began his quest to find the perfect nutrition & hydration product. He didn't find it. So rather than changing sports to bowling, he decided to learn everything there was to know about nutrition and hydration and "bake" his own. This was the genesis of Tailwind Nutrition. We talk to Jeff about what he learned about nutrition and electrolytes and how Tailwind may just be the answer to many of our problems.
