Travis Macy – The Ultra Mindset

Sarah and I sit down with The Ultra Mindset – An Endurance Champion’s 8 Core Principles for Success in Business, Sports, and Life (Lifelong Books) author Travis Macy to learn how we can apply what we know as ultrarunners to our every day lives.  Though Travis is an experienced endurance athlete and coach, this book doesn’t contain any advice on physical training or fitness, instead focusing on the mental aspect of our training and life.

Travis grew up watching his dad run ultras in Colorado and has since dedicated his life to adventure racing (you thought MUT runners had crazy race reports?!?) and ultramarathons.  This book helps figure  out how to apply the skills of positive thought, hard work, adaptation, etc., to his family and professional life.

With a foreword by Dean Karnazes and other contributions from Marshall Ulrich, Pam Smith and Dave Mackey, there’s a lot in this book you can relate to.

If you’re interested in buying the book, please consider using this link to Amazon. It’ll drop a few pesos into the URP bucket and I’d be awfully appreciative.
