I have been reading “Let your mind run” by Deena Kastor. I stumbled across the book when looking for running books written by a woman. (Seems like all the books I was reading were written by men.) I knew who Deena was but didn’t know about her story. This book goes back to her early childhood when she started running (and winning!), takes us through her running story in high school and college, and into professional life. As the title says it reflects around the mental side of running, and life in general. Even race reports revolves a lot around this. We learn Deena’s specific mental strategies and there are many. I think I need to read the book again, preferably a few weeks before a race, and take notes because there is a lot to learn. The overall message is very applicable to all aspects of life. I also think I want to read more books on this topic.
