Following a rough swim and rough roads, Gollnick found herself six minutes behind going into T2 with only the ½ marathon remaining to race. “Being this far behind, my mindset was WIN or crash and burn.” Gollnick posted the fastest run of the day 1:20 en route to her first victory of the year. “The 70.3 in Pucon was my first race since using the new Optygen HP. This product is a true success!! My victory in Pucon is direct proof,” Gollnick also depended heavily on the EFS bars to fuel her for this race “It was hard to find foods to fit my unique diet while in Chile where I speak little Spanish and a variety of Gluten Free food were difficult to find. Fortunately I had a box of First Endurance EFS bars that fueled my way to a 70.3 Pucon Victory!!”
