194: How to Cultivate a Racer’s Mindset

S. Marshall, Les Paterson (10_19_2017)

If you don’t want to hear jokes, laughter, or a bit of “language”, then this isn’t the episode for you (or perhaps an episode for little ears either). I had a blast—and I mean a blast—chatting with husband-wife coaching team of performance psychology expert, Simon Marshall and three-time world triathlon champion, Leslie Paterson.

We discuss the following:

  • Differences in coaching men versus women and how they view racing
  • Radical candor
  • Eating disorders and how they’re very common in the endurance sport industry
  • Latest research around depression and social media
  • How to determine if you’re using social media for “stalking”
  • The interesting way they finished their book
  • Team “S*it”
  • What to pack for a race
  • What to think about when showing up for a race

Serena Marie, RD, and I discuss some listeners’ questions about what we ate before and during our 2015 marathons and our experiences with food. It took us a little while to remember what we ate! We also talked about how Serena has qualified for Boston three times, whether she has run it, and if not, why.

Since I interviewed two coaches for this episode, and right now I am in an intensive coaching class to become certified by the International Coaching Federation, we discussed how to best be of service to runners.

I am working with clients on how to take a holistic approach that is grounded in positive psychology to their lives. I would love to work on certain areas of your life in which you want to see shifts and so much more!

If you’re looking for a training plan, I’m not your girl. If you want help with your energy management, deeper relationships, and/or productivity that matters, then we could be a great fit. Send me an email at Kari@TheRunningLifestyle.com, and we’ll be on our way.
