New York, New York...

There are more than 500 marathons worldwide these days and the New York City Marathon is one of the five largest and most prestigious marathons in the world. The event draws more than 100,000 applicants annually from around the globe with a limit of 38,000 participants.

This year’s New York City Marathon will take place on November 7, 2010 and our very own USANA Australi
a & New Zealand General Manager, Gill Stapleton has guaranteed a place.

Gill loves marathons but even more, she loves achieving goals, and she prepares well. New York City marathon has been at least six month training. “Getting into this event is like winning a lottery, and I have set up a goal for myself – to reduce my Paris time and aim to come in under five hours… Four hours 59 min would suit me fine!”

The long run is an important element in marathon training. Greater weekly training mileages can offer gr
eater results in terms of distance and endurance, but also carry a greater risk of training injury. Another essential part of marathon preparation is looking after your nutritional health. Gill not only heads USANA Australia & New Zealand, she loves the products too!

She takes USANA HealthPak, CoQuinone 100, Proflavanol C, BiOmega, Procosamine II and Vitamin D to keep her body in the best condition. In order to avoid digestive problems, Gill also takes USANA Nutrimeal and loves the new fibergy.

The countdown is on. USANA is very proud to support Gill who is running for a great cause – Breast Cancer Network Australia. With the Paris marathon under her belt and New York soon notched up, Gill is contemplating London marathon for 2012.

What goals are you setting for yourself for this year and next?

Gill is going to wear her USANA pink top for the run.
