Jarrod Shoemaker is a co-founder of Endurance Shield and has been wearing sunscreen all of his life. But, until now, he hadn't found one that he knew was actually doing the job. Jarrod was an athlete from a young age, playing baseball, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, ice hockey, wrestling, swimming, and running. When Jarrod was in high school and college, he lifeguarded on the beach for five years with the Harvey Cedars Beach Patrol in New Jersey, spending a lot of time in the sun. He also took home back-to-back Northeast Regional Beach Run Championships and a National Lifeguard Beach Run Championship!
Now that his full-time job is being a professional triathlete, Jarrod, like all athletes spending time outdoors, is concerned with his skin's sun protection. He has struggled to find a sunscreen that stays on throughout an entire triathlon.
Thus, Endurance Shield was born!
