Inspiration at Work

InspireAuthors are known to find a place where the environment around them inspires them to craft magical words together.  That place may be in the mountains somewhere, by the beach, in the woods, by a lake or someplace similar.  Other artists who want their work to be great do the same.

New Book: Triathlete EQ

TriEQbookHeather Gollnick, 5-Time Ironman Champion and winner of over 200 multi-sport events, and Dr. Izzy Justice, a sports neuropsychologist, proudly announce the release of their new book: TRIATHLETE EQ – A GUIDE FOR EMOTIONAL ENDURANCE. The central premise of the book is that endurance sports are as much a test of an athlete’s emotional endurance skills as they are a test of their physical ability skills.

Chrissie Wellington, 4-Time World Champion, endorsed the book as “unique and much needed … for elite and novice athletes…” The book is rooted in neuroscience, has practical exercises and tips, and has a workbook format that allows readers to build their own customized mental strategies to incorporate into training and racing. USAT and Ironman Hall of Famer Bob Bobbitt has written the forward. To read other reviews, an excerpt of the book or to purchase it, please visit www.triathleteq.com. As Olympian and 70.3 World Champion, Andy Potts, noted, “…this book will help you perform better.”
