“Long distance running is 90% mental and the other half is physical.”
Races are really a mental exercise. Sure, if you don’t physically prepare then no amount of positive thinking will carry your sorry butt to the top of Mt. Everest. However, the truth is that physical training is only as good as an athlete’s ability to exercise strong mental will. It isn’t physical stamina that carries a runner across the finish line. It’s being strong in mind.
That’s why we are excited to announce we are partnering with Active Mind Race Camps. These camps offer a unique opportunity for athletes to learn how to train their minds through psychological preparation.
The camp will be held in a meeting room at the Stanley Hotel and will run from 4:00-6:00pm on Thursday, August 15th, and 9:00am-5:00pm on Friday, August 16th (packet pick up will be included in the workshop). Camp will be limited to 20 runners. The cost is $195 per runner and includes lunch at the Stanley Hotel and a personalized camp journal.
This would be a great thing to be a part of if this is your first high altitude race.
Again, the focus is to help athletes prepare mentally so that they might have the best race experience possible by aligning mental processes with physical capabilities. The skills you will learn at this camp will not only improve performance in future races, but will ensure you have a positive and fulfilling race experience.
