<b><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Put your articles, techniques, quotes, tips, strategies, book recommendations, etc. related to the mental aspects of training and racing here. I'll start with this excerpt from <a href="http://endorphinfitness.com/article_mentaltraining.htm" target="_blank">http://endorphinfitness.com/article_mentaltraining.htm</a></span><br></span></b><br><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;">"<i>...one thing stands to separate two equal athletes at the start line: Mental Strength. The mind is oftentimes our greatest limiter, and it has the ability to make or break a training session, race, or season. Endurance sports are dominated not by the athletes with the most talent, though this plays a role, but the athletes that have the largest will to succeed and are the strongest mentally. All of those training miles and hard sessions can go fruitless if on race day you don’t have the right mindset.</i></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><i>This mindset starts with training. We have all been blessed with a gift: The ability to live life to the fullest by participating in a sport that affords our body a vehicle to grow, strengthens our minds, and allows us to have more fun than we could have ever imagined. Enter every training session with this in mind, and choose to make something happen every time you slip on those running shoes. Every training session is an opportunity to improve in a specific area of running as well as life. Realize the opportunity that every run holds and make a choice mentally to give yourself a chance to reach your potential."</i></span><br><br><br><br><br>
