Hi, I am Jay Jennings a Serving Soldier, Endurance runner and GB Age Group Triathlete. I literally 'Live to Train' whether that be in pursuit of qualification at a Championship race or for a work aligned deployment/course. I have spent the past 17 years travelling the globe in pursuit of personal development, the last 3 years focusing on Triathlon and Endurance fitness.
I am fortunate to have raced in some amazing countries and thrive on the challenges that racing abroad delivers; my racing highlights thus far have been representing GB in the Lisbon European Triathlon Championships, representing the Army as a Championship Runner at the London Marathon and my relay podiums at both Iroman 70.3 Exmoor and Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire. Short term, I intend on qualifying for the ITU Rotterdam World Triathlon Championships in September and 2018 European Champs which means racing in multiple qualification races across the UK. I am fortunate enough to have been selected for the European Standard Distance Duathlon Championship in Spain for Great Britain. A solid performance here may see me at the Worlds in Canada in August. Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire, The Millenium Way Ultra Marathon and the Virgin London Marathon will fill the remainder of my time.
I have always struggled with 'gloopy gels' and 'messy powder' when racing so have been looking for a product like Oompf Enengy for a while. Clean, natural nutrition is key for me as an AG athlete, I am extremely conscious of what I consider fuel and having sampled the products in the taster pack I was immediately sold. The bars are perfect for those long rides with convenient wrapping and tasty flavours (Pistachio my favourite but closely followed by Acai). Get a little Oompf in your life! #furtherfaster
