About this episode

Addie is a professional athlete, sports psychology consultant, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, author and run coach. Personally and professionally, Addie is heavily involved in the running community.

In this episode we talk about:

  • choosing to explore your limits across all facets of running
  • coaching athletes to stay curious
  • racing free of pressure or expectation
  • handling discomfort
  • building mental toughness requires intentional practice
  • unpacking mastery and a growth mindset
  • training for the Leadville 100 mile race
  • giving back to the running community
  • setting goals within your control: process over outcome
  • reasons for running 100 miles
  • “normal” non-elite athletes can run ultras too
  • separating your why and successes from objective measures
  • using running as a reflection for how you want to show up in the world
  • giving your best effort, even in low moments
  • deciding how you respond to challenges
  • distractions vs feedback during races
