#hümabeings

 

Hüma ambassadors or #Hümabeings as we like to refer to them, are passionate people from all walks of life. No matter the athletic endeavor, they are people who care about what they put in their bodies.

Not only are Hüma ambassadors impassioned by the simple all-natural ingredients of Hüma gels, they are also fervent about sharing their experiences with Hüma with everyone they meet.

Athletic endeavor(s) of choice? I heart my bike…so anything that allows me to ride I’m game for: even if that means I have to swim first and run afterwards.

What are your sporting career highlights?

Not drowning/crashing/falling during any of the sprint, olympic, or half-iron distance triathlons I’ve completed. I earned age group podiums a couple of times – and even climbed on some boxes after racing in a local TT series, appropriately named “The Hammerfest.” Sometimes I run fast (speed is relative, of course) for no apparent reason, other than to earn yet another shirt and support a worthy cause. Other times I’ve run for a few hours to earn more than a t-shirt. I’ll be completing my first 140.6 this fall in Louisville but am currently in denial that I have actually signed up.
