Making Racing Simple: An Interview with Sage Rountree
Do you need a step-by-step guide for minimizing the stresses that surround a race?
That’s what this week’s guest, Sage Rountree, set out to produce when she wrote the soon-to-be-released book Racing Wisely.
Sage is a yoga instructor and running coach and Racing Wisely is her fifth published book. In her previous four books, she focused on recovery, but this time she’s tackled an issue that’s never before been covered by an entire book: racing.
Sage really does a fantastic job of unpacking the step-by-step process behind racing and presenting it in a fashion that allows one to focus on a simple task: running to the best of their ability on that day (rather than worrying about all of the little things that can easily destroy a great race!).
Here are some of the things we talked about:
Setting four different levels of goals.
Making a “packing list” before your race, for your race day bag.
How to racing for time.
How to race against competition.
Keys to stay focused when a race goes bad.
Comment below and tell us how you prepare for your races!
