Feeling Better Faster!

I recently had the privilege of serving as a kayak support paddler for the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim. This was a 3.1 mile (5k) swim across Tampa Bay to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation. As I paddled out to stage for the start, a twinge from an old shoulder injury reminded me that I had forgotten to take my usual couple of aspirin to cut down on the discomfort that follows even a shorter day of paddling. My thoughts of a leisurely trip across the Bay went out the window when “my” swimmer, 14-year-old Becca Mann, pulled out the stops and set a blistering 56-minute pace that earned her first place in the women's division and third overall.

After parking my kayak on the beach and congratulating Becca, I spotted a tent with a big marine cooler filled with ice. “Perfect,” I thought, “I’m thirsty!” I walked over, but when I saw all the slim metal cans I thought, “I don’t want an energy drink…” and started to look for a bottle of water. As I looked around, I overheard the two gentlemen in the tent explaining to a swimmer what “Kill Cliff” – the drink cans in the cooler – is and does. Turns out that Kill Cliff is not an energy drink, but is a carefully formulated beverage designed to speed recovery from exercise or exertion. Developed by a Navy SEAL, a can of Kill Cliff has only 15 calories and a bunch of natural ingredients that help your body reduce inflammation and de-stress your body after physical activity. I shrugged, and with “Can’t hurt, right?” running through my head I popped a top and took a big swig. The blood orange flavor was just right – not sweet, and refreshing! I finished the can, and took one for the road.

Another three mile paddle back to the start, carrying a couple of kayaks up the beach and onto the truck, unloading at the house… Not exactly a SEAL swim, but an amount of exertion that I expected would cause a sore shoulder at the end of the day. Much to my surprise, I walked past the cabinet holding the aspirin for the rest of the day, and had no issues the next morning. The Kill Cliff had worked its magic and let my body take care of itself, rather than me just masking the pain. I am very impressed!

My years in the fire and emergency services left their share of bumps and bruises, not to mention that at my age (shudder) my older friends tell me I can expert more aches and pains. Most of the kayak fisher-persons I know are not open water swimmers or SpecWar operators, but a lot of us can benefit from a drink that supports our bodies’ natural ability to bounce back after a day on the water or a morning in the gym. I’m adding Kill Cliff to my Polar Bear coolers!

By the way - Kill Cliff was a Foundation Sponsor for the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim. It’s nice to see a company doing the right thing, even in difficult economic times. Well done!
