This past weekend, my wife Fe and I had the chance to bring Sambazon out to the Ironman in St. George, Utah.
First things first, huge congratulations to all the people who raced, finishing a 2.4 mi. swim, 112 mi. bike, and a 26.2 mi. run is definitely not easy. Seeing the intensity and the rigor that the participants put their bodies through is incredible. Big, small, short, tall, round or 100 lbs....everyone out there is fighting for something, and somehow, clear as day, you can see right into the window of their emotions and experience the fight with them. Especially in those last 100 meters as they near the finish line! Powerful stuff! Thank you all for the inspiration! I will be taking it with me as I compete at Ironman Brasil in a couple weeks.
Big ups to Michael Weiss, the IM St. George Champion. So he tells me after the race he drinks two Sambazon bottles per day...ha...who knew? In fact, most Triathletes seem to really appreciate our stuff. Maybe it’s because they are looking for a refreshing alternative to all the highly processed drinks, gels, and chews that people are wolfing down all day. Or maybe it is because our açaí is just that good..either way I am always impressed at how loyal the Sambazon users are.
Looking for a treat on the way home, we searched out an amazing raw food spot in Vegas called "Go Raw." In addition to making a quite tasty bowl using Sambazon açaí, they also have some amazing raw burgers, pizzas, and pastas... If you ever roll through town, we highly suggest you try it!
