    • Wilderness

We all know that our genes are the blueprint for who we are but has genetic testing reached the point that we can find out who we are meant to be? Several companies now offer DNA tests that purport to inform users of their athletic potential and specific abilities. Is this based on science or is this just another example of putting the cart way ahead of the horse? I investigate. Plus, the amazing Mike Wien; age group World Champion for the 70.3 triathlon, and winner of the Boston Marathon and NYC marathons all in rapid succession. Meet this amazing and affable man in my interview with him.
