Thurs Night Fun Run + Pizza + Sports and Performance Psychology Talk
January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for our weekly community-oriented fun run with 5K/10K options for all levels of runners at 6 p.m., followed by pizza from Savory Cuisines Catering and cold beverages. After the run, we’ll listen to an engaging talk about Sports and Performance Psychology for all levels of runners from Addie Bracy, M.A., a Boulder-based, elite Nike-sponsored trail runner, running coach and sports psychology consultant to Strive Mental Performance.
Addie has been training and competing as a competitive runner for more than 20 years including participating in two U.S. Olympic Trials (marathon and 10K) and 10 USA international teams. Those experiences coupled with the observations she gained during 10 years of coaching led her to recognize and appreciate the critical role that mindset plays in our sport. Several years ago she went back to school at the University of Denver and earned her master’s degree in sport and performance psychology. Her main initiative over the last few years has been to help athletes develop a mindset that then becomes their biggest asset on race day, rather than their biggest hindrance.
