Putting The Race In Perspective

As you approach your goal race this fall or you set your sights on new challenges this winter and spring, remember to put the race in perspective. Your friends and family won’t desert you and there is almost always going to be another opportunity if the race doesn’t go as planned.

If you’ve done the training and have an executable race plan, you have everything you need for a good performance. There’s no reason to get overly anxious about the outcomes you can’t control.

By shifting your thinking, you can reduce those pre-race nerves and ultimately perform better and more consistently while enjoying the experience even more.
