In 2014 Thomas raced in over 20 events, ranging from duathlons to full-ironman distance races. Thomas stays healthy by implementing a strict program which includes a healthy diet, proper rest, and EnduroPacks daily system of vitamins and minerals, to keep him healthy and performing at peak levels.
Thomas Gerlach grew up in Madison, Wisconsin playing team sports and running circles around the other kids when it came to aerobic activity. He found the sport of triathlon after suffering an overuse injury due to his heavy focus on running marathons during college. His first triathlon race was in 2006 and every year since then he has been one of the most active racers and always try to have some fun and smile while I am out there competing. Since turning pro in 2011, he has a total of 7 professional podium finishes, including fifth overall in the Challenge Atlantic City Ironman, second overall in the 2014 Ironman Louisville, and third overall in the 2014 Ironman Silverman 70.3, among others.
Thomas plans to incorporate EnduroPacks daily system of sports nutrition into his offseason training regimen to help him recover properly from his training and stay healthy.

We need to hydrate. But how can you hydrate and replace electrolytes without the harmful additives like sweeteners and artificial flavoring common in sports drinks that are harsh on your stomach?
