Some might have balked at the idea of signing up for a race like the Quantico Epic Mountain Bike Adventure “Mini-Mayhem” event with only 5 days’ notice—the annual 18-mile race challenges participants with rugged terrain and 1,900 vertical feet of elevation changes.
Booz Allen’s Irik Johnson and MR Blank signed up for this mayhem without hesitation and approached the event with confidence, successfully reaching the finish line.
Their secret? Johnson and Blank are experts in human performance training: tactics, habits, and procedures to improve mental strength and maximize an individual’s physical capabilities.
At Booz Allen, Johnson and Blank use high-performance training concepts on the job every day supporting warfighters, first responders, and athletes—and for their own readiness when a racing opportunity comes up on very short notice.
