Abstract:

"Travis Macy has summited glacial peaks in the French Alps, rappelled into limestone caves in China, and raced through parched deserts in Utah. In 2013, he famously won the Leadman Series, a combination of nearly 300 miles of high-altitude trail running and mountain biking over the course of five epic endurance races. Macy achieved all of these victories without elite professional training or even exceptional strength, speed, or flexibility. His secret? A precise outlook he calls the "ultra mindset," a set of simple principles for daily life that includes embracing fear, rewriting the stories we tell ourselves, and mastering the art of asking for help. By practicing these principles in all areas of life, anyone can successfully achieve goals that might have otherwise seemed impossible."--

"Travis Macy has trekked, kayaked, climbed and swum through horizontal freezing rain in the Scottish Highlands; snowshoed across Canada's desolate plains; and run through parched Mexican deserts. Most famously, he has won the Leadman, a combination trail running marathon, 50-mile mountain biking race, 100-mile mountain biking race, 10k run, and 100-mile trail run. Macy has accomplished it without exceptional strength, speed, flexibility, high tech performance labs, or performance-enhancing drugs. His secret? A precise and particular outlook he calls the "Ultra Mindset." The core principles of the mindset--including embracing fear, learning to rewrite stories about your past, and mastering the art of seeking help, among others--are neither mysterious nor the sole province of ascetics or elite athletes. Macy has discovered that by applying the same principles of the Ultra Mindset to other areas of life, anyone can find success and fulfillment that otherwise would have been impossible. Juxtaposing these lessons with stories of Macy's own sports career and vignettes from from other ultra athletes, the principles of The Ultra Mindset offer valuable advice for any reader who wants to maximize his or her potential--whether in a marathon, in a marriage, in a job or any other aspect of life: 1. It's all good mental training. 2. Be a wannabe. 3. Find your carrot. 4. Have an ego and use it--until it's not usable. 5. Think about your thinking: WHAT and WHY and when for each of them. 6. The 4:30 a.m. Rule: You have no choice. That's your choice. 7. Most of your demons are just stories. Fight them with better ones. 8. Never quit--except when you should"--
