Deena Kastor | Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory
A great audiobook/book by Olympic marathon medalist and multiple-distance American record holder Deena Kastor.
Beginning with her discovery of running, Kastor recounts the fixed-mindset attitude about her running talent that led to near-burnout by college.
After finding a mentor in legendary running coach Joe Vigil, Kastor began to explore her attitude towards training, competing, adversity and discovered that a growth-mindset and putting a positive spin on any situation helped her develop the mental muscle to compete at the very top of the sport and achieve incredible goals.
As with Meb’s book there are some great blow-by-blow race reports and training insights. Fascinating reading/listening for anyone interested in running or top level competition in any area.
