Whether you are a rookie or veteran, you’re here because we are all competitive athletes trying to navigate the marathon of life course—the ups, downs, opportunities and detours we face each and every day that challenge us to stay on track.
I won’t lie, the course to attaining your personal best for training and competition is not straight—there are winding roads, hills and obstacles sometimes beyond your control that will compete with your discipline and ability to stay focused on YOU! However, once you know how to fuel your body, mind and spirit, you’ll even embrace and master the 140.6 in your own personal life to propel you to fast racing.

No doubt this year has been anything but normal.

Easier said than done with the COVID dark cloud in the air impacting energy levels, sleep and mental energy. Even the most devoted gained an average of 5 pounds of weight and fat and lost lean body mass over the past 7 months—what I call the COVID-5.
