Athlete spotlight

I recently caught up with Maureen Vandermey to find out more about her training and competing for her first marathon. We sat down together over Skype to discuss the race, her perseverance as a beginner and the strategies that helped her, such as mental drafting, staying in the Zone and applying mental gymnastics to “flatten out hills.” Her commentary can teach beginners and pros some good lessons in resiliency, no matter what your sport.
The biggest takeaway however, was how much fun she had throughout her entire run!

Listen to the podcast below.

"This is the revolutionary aspect of Bob's program. It helps you change your mind, and your physiology by using the Zone experience as the central focus of your everyday activities."
