Shannon Mick is a Licensed Professional Counselor and has a private mental health practice in Pennsylvania. She is also an ultramarathon runner and mindset coach.
You don't have to be an athlete to be a mindset performance coach. But I do believe it is an advantage to work with someone who has run the distance and has experienced the mental challenges of an ultramarathon.
When you are sweating in the heat, or shivering in the cold rain, or slogging through mud, and alone in the dark, you need to know the mindset work you've done is going to see you through to the finish.
Shannon and I talk about the most effective way to use mantras and how to handle meeting a cougar out on the trail.
