While growing up in Boulder, Colo., Drew was always involved in sports, which included his first triathlon when he was just seven years old. He would later compete in several triathlons during the summers of his junior and senior years in high school. Drew also participated in cross country ski racing for 10 years, including two at Montana State University, after which he decided to turn his focus toward triathlon in 2011.
After a year and a half of racing in the amateur ranks — which included several race wins and a 10:12 finish at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii — Drew turned pro in 2013, focusing on non-drafting Olympic distance and medium-distance triathlons. Since then, he has won several races, including the 2014 New Orleans 5150 and Silverman 70.3, as well as stood on the podium of several more.
- 2015: 3rd place, IRONMAN 70.3 St. Croix
- 2014: 1st place, IRONMAN 70.3 Silverman, New Orleans 5150, 3rd place, Kansas 5150

How SaltStick helps Drew:
“When I’m training three to five hours every day, it’s crucial to make sure that I keep up on my electrolyte levels each day and don’t ‘cook’ myself for the following day’s workouts. SaltStick is an easy solution to this and extremely convenient to take at any time throughout the day. After using SaltStick for several years, it’s hard to imagine getting by without it!”
Drew’s favorite thing about triathlon:
“Being outside and working hard.”
