Obstacle Course Racer Shawn Crosswhite

With Beet It Sport, I can push harder and run faster without being gassed.
It’s a natural feeling of power and not a synthetic feeling like some pre-workout products.

 

Beet It Sport Ambassador Shawn Crosswhite

Would you describe yourself as an athlete?
I do think of myself as an athlete. Athletes come in all forms and ability levels.

Have you always been a runner??
I started running on the middle school track team. I stopped after middle school and focused more on other things. I found OCR or Obstacle Course Racing about 5 years ago and that got me running again. I now have a love and passion for running.

Do you participate in many races?
Over the past years I’ve run over 100 races. These are mostly OCR, road and trail races. I am even part of the OCRUnitedPro Team. If I was able to travel more, I would compete more often as well. When I go on vacations I always look for a local race to run, including last year’s OCRWC in Canada where I qualified and competed.

What motivates you to train and compete harder?
Without a doubt I want to be the best version of me that I can be. I want to get on the podium and strive to be better than before. I also have two young children who look up to me and I want to be the example that they deserve.

Any tips on nutrition that you try and follow?
Eat all the food, run all the races. But in all seriousness, there is no quick fix or fad. You have to eat to fuel your body and not just feed your body. You have to enjoy life though and that doesn’t mean skipping on treats.

How did you hear about Beet It Sport?
I have been taking Beet It Sport for about 3 years now. I had taken other beet related products from powders to juices before. I researched a lot and found one that works the best without having to drink 20oz of beet juice.

Did you notice a benefit to using Beet It Sport?
The benefits to Beet It Sport are noticeable. I follow their suggested preload amounts and notice the differences. I can push harder and run faster without being gassed. It’s a natural feeling of power and not a synthetic feeling like some pre-workout products.

Anything additional you would like to add about Beet It Sport?
Beet It Sport is the best tasting product on the market. Trust me I have tried almost all of them. It’s a small shot that delivers the best amount of nitrates to the body. I feel like I should drink more or maybe I just want to for the taste but the smaller concentrated amount is perfect.
