Seven-time national cross-country Coach of the Year, Doug Stutz, shares key principles for successful distance racing, each beginning with the letter P. For each principle, one of his athletes relates how she or he applied it to race stronger. Race Your Best teaches what to think and do as you prepare to race, while you race, and after you race. You'll learn the power of running on Purpose, following a detailed Plan, making Pacts, and Practicing what you anticipate doing in key races. You'll discover the secrets of how to focus on your Position and Pace and to Partition the race to Push through the Pain. You'll feel the importance of Pausing to Ponder following each race and of Praising others who make your success possible. Applying just one of these, or other key principles included in Race Your Best, can make a significant difference in your racing performance. Foreword by Doug Padilla.
