Greetings, Friends!

Intrepid Performance Consulting

This was a special episode for me, as I was really as novice as anyone could be with using specific Sports Psychology Training for my benefit.  Sure, I’ve always understood the importance of having a correct attitude, thinking positively and pursuing a goal…  But I’ve never contemplated processes for engaging in such mental exercises regularly or what should be done tactically.  John and Abby Keenan changed all that for me during our taping and in my preparations for this broadcast!  And I have solid reason to believe such will the case for you, too! 

As always, we would appreciate your feedback.  You can send us a note at podcast@bigpeachrunningco.com with suggestions for this episode or anything you would like to see in the future!  Of course, this is also where you can submit your question for the Podcast Payout!

We appreciate you being part of the fun!  We’ll be back Labor Day week…  In the meantime, here are the Show Notes for our 8th installment:
