My name is Tim Gorichanaz and I am a PhD student and ultrarunner. The grad student life can be very sedentary, so in addition to my daily runs I make sure to fix in frequent changes in position, short walks, stretches, etc. My eating is something like Bulletproof/paleo, but without being too, too picky. I’m generally a calm and balanced person, but what I did notice from Sun Horse was what I can only describe as a heightened sense of vitality. It’s not a smack-you-in-the-face burst of energy like you might get from a double-espresso, but then it doesn’t come with the crash you’d get from that, either. Instead, it’s an overall, sustainable positivity. With adaptogens, I feel more ready to face the world—whether it’s performing in my next race, working on a paper, or presenting at a conference. Oh, and another amazing benefit I’ve noticed is fat loss. I’ve been overweight for all of my life. As a kid I was clinically obese, weighing around 240 pounds. In college I started strength training, and slowly my weight went down over the years. For the past few years, though, I’ve been around 190 pounds with a bit of a spare tire that seemed to stick around no matter what. But about two weeks after taking Sun Horse, I noticed abdominal muscles peeking through for the first time. That was an unexpected surprise! I’ve attached a photo of me after winning the 2016 Dawn 2 Dusk 2 Dawn 12-hour track event. I ran about 65 miles in 12 hours (overnight) on a high school track. Feel free to use it for whatever you’d like. – Tim
