My name is Samantha Calderon. I live and train in Boulder, Colorado with my husband, Julian, and my pup, Chardonnay. I am passionate about running, eating, and being happy.
I moved to Colorado from Minnesota last summer (August 2017) to train. I wanted to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Trials in the Marathon, and in January, I did. I am very in-tune with my body and how I feed it. I love to give it whole foods, and lots of nutrient-dense fuel. I recently started drinking TRUEST UltraTonics® because I love beets and I know that there are performance-enhancing benefits from consuming them. I always want to do everything I can, naturally, to be the best runner I can be. After drinking Kvass for a few weeks, I noticed I was recovering faster, I felt better on runs, and I was improving with each workout. I couldn’t believe it. I was hooked! Not only do I love Kvass, but also the meaning behind TRUEST – a local Colorado company using only the best simple natural ingredients to provide a high-quality drink, from the powerhouse that is a beet, to help everyone live their truest life and reach their goals.
I am excited to share more about my journey to the Olympic Trials, along with the various recipes and training days I have leading up to it. Please join me on the journey!
