My book is being shipped as I write this. I am excited. I am terrified. I am unskilled in how to sell it, but I am counting on my passion to guide the process. I mostly wrote it to fulfill a lifelong goal, but I believe in the message. I want to inspire you to find your vehicle that can take you on a journey of self discovery.
Racer or not, I know that like these blogs, my messages can be applied to most of us at different times in our lives. I never claim to have “the answers” for all of you, but I do believe in the power of sharing stories, including what I have learned along the way. I hope you can learn from me, as I continue to learn from many of you through your own raw and real journeys.
I have had the privilege of knowing, understanding, and loving myself and others better by going far for over sixteen years. And I am excited to continue to have a grounded view of my personal evolution while surrounded by amazing people.
Enjoy a sneak peek, taken from the inside jacket of Far Better: Self Discovery through the Power of Endurance Sports.
WHY RACE IF YOU KNOW YOU WILL NOT WIN?
To keep learning more about yourself.
Racing is truly a metaphor for life —you navigate the ups and downs while benefiting from being able to evolve and pivot. The training and racing journey teaches you physical, mental, and emotional lessons about yourself, which cultivates self-love, awareness, and trust that you can apply to benefit all aspects of your life. And all of this is done alongside people and through relationships.
In Far Better, (I) share (my) story of being a longtime endurance coach and athlete, and my personal evolution so far through the sport and in life. I share many of the lessons I have learned through exposure to and participation in endurance athletics, and then I teach you how you can apply those lessons to your racing career and your overall well-being. My mental tips, delivered with experience, knowledge, and empathy, will help prepare you for your next race while simultaneously cultivating an understanding of your humanness.
The vital impact of relationships is woven throughout the book in order to remind us all that belonging is essential to our existence.
LIFE IS A RACE, AND YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS ONE MOMENT OF IT.
I will continue to give my praise to God, and my gratitude to my family and friends, especially Jamie and the kids. My journey was only possible through massive amounts of love, support, and unwavering grace.
