Meet Dee Auciello - Ironman Athlete & Swivel Bottle fanatic!
Crossing the finish line of any race is an amazing feeling, but can you imagine the emotions you experience when finishing an Ironman triathlon? That requires swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles, and running 26.2 miles. The very best ironman triathletes in the world do this at the iconic Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. We received a wonderful testimonial from our new friend Dee Auciello, who did just that on October 14th.
As you'll read below, Swivel Bottle helped Dee execute her hydration and fueling strategy to perfection. Thank you Dee for sharing this powerful testimonial as well as the beautiful photos to go along with it. Congratulations on this huge accomplishment!
I am seriously in LOVE with the Swivel Bottle. I literally rave about the bottle to everyone. It’s my favorite thing ever. I’ve been a runner my whole life and it has legit changed my training ever since my friend gave it to me. In Kona, my stomach was really bothering me, making it difficult even to take water-y gels like SIS (which I also absolutely love). They didn’t have my personal needs bag at the bike turn around and I knew I needed to get nutrition in. I have my carbs mix in the orange part of my swivel and the blue is always water. So I’m always able to get in nutrition even if I’m not feeling good. I took it on all my long runs this season and it changed the game for me.
At the personal needs on the run I had the choice of leaving that Swivel Bottle behind and just carrying my Nathan bottle. And I decided to just leave the Nathan behind because I could put Gatorade in one side and water in the other once I ran out of nutrition.
It’s so genius!
