Au­thor of “The Over/ Un­der on Per­for­mance,” Page 23.

Anne L’Heureux was an over­weight teen — top­ping out at 185 pounds at age 14 — and started road cy­cling in 2010 as a way to get in shape. But in 2013, every­thing changed. “That’s when I com­pleted my first Spar­tan Race at Fen­way Park,” she says. “I had no idea what I was get­ting into, but by the end, I was hooked!”

To­day, she races in the elite heats for Spar­tan and uses her nu­tri­tional knowl­edge to gain a com­pet­i­tive edge. “I be­lieve that nutrition is a key com­po­nent in ath­lete per­for­mance,” L’Heureux says. “I al­most view it as a se­cret weapon.”
