Fed up with feeling bad on race day, I set out to make a simple, tasty endurance drink with complete energy, electrolytes, and hydration. It was my secret weapon for awhile, until other Leadville racers and friends in our hometown of Durango, CO started catching on. They had great results too and kept asking for more, and Tailwind Nutrition was born.
We’re a nano-sized family business, coming at nutrition from an endurance athlete’s perspective. We love helping customers dial in nutrition and hearing their awesome success stories. I hope you'll give Tailwind a try and share your story with us!" - Jeff, Tailwind founder
With a penchant for a good steak and going long, Jeri ran her first marathon on the back of her first ironman triathlon. Since then, she has successfully competed in many prestigious events such as the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, the Ultra Trail Mont-Blanc 168km ultra-marathon in France, and the 330km Tor Des Geants mountain ultra-marathon in Italy. The former fashion director maintains a keen personal interest in healthy living and fitness, and has decided to step away from the world of luxury fashion to pursue her sporting passions instead. She holds a Master of Science in Exercise and Nutrition Science which she intends to put to good use in spreading the Tailwind gospel, and practicing what she preaches with more ultra-distance events on the horizon, including a 400km in the Gobi Desert this summer, and the 895km Trans-Pyrenea crossing in 2016.
