Name: Jeremy Koontz
Hometown: San Antonio, Texas
Jeremy has been competing in triathlons for several years and says his favorite thing about the extreme endurance sport, is the mental effort needed to cross the finish line. “The training,” Koontz says, “Is an exercise in self-realization.” A veteran in the ultra marathon community, Koontz has placed in the top three of several 26+ races and is well on his way to rising in the ranks of the triathlon circuit.
When Jeremy trains he uses the Polar Bottle Ergo at the pool and a 20oz sport with his road bike. Hydration, he says, is essential for top performance and with a Polar Bottle water bottle in his bike cage, he says, he is confident he can achieve his goals to compete as a professional Ironman athlete by spring 2014 and win his first of these epic races by the end of that year.
