Description

New York Times Best Seller

Deena Kastor was a star youth runner with tremendous promise, yet her career almost ended after college, when her competitive method - run as hard as possible, for fear of losing - fostered a frustration and negativity and brought her to the brink of burnout. On the verge of quitting, she took a chance and moved to the high altitudes of Alamosa, Colorado, where legendary coach Joe Vigil had started the first professional distance-running team. There she encountered the idea that would transform her running career: the notion that changing her thinking - shaping her mind to be more encouraging, kind, and resilient - could make her faster than she’d ever imagined possible. Building a mind so strong would take years of effort and discipline, but it would propel Kastor to the pinnacle of running - to American records in every distance from the 5K to the marathon - and to the accomplishment of earning America’s first Olympic medal in the marathon in 20 years.

Let Your Mind Run is a fascinating, intimate look inside the mind of an elite athlete, a remarkable story of achievement, and an insightful primer on how the small steps of cultivating positivity can give anyone a competitive edge.

Critiques

“A candid account about the self-doubt that enters the mind of an elite athlete and how positive thinking made [Kastor] a champion both on and off the course.” (Athletes Quarterly

“Long-distance runner Deena Kastor shows the secret to her success - and as an Olympic medalist and the American female record holder in the marathon, she’s had more than a few - relies less on any inborn talents, but on ‘the power of thought, attitude and perspective.’ Through race day and training anecdotes, she reveals the mental habits anyone can use to unleash their physical and mental potential.” (Furthermore from Equinox, Five Books High Performers Should Read This Month)  

“I have been savoring every story, every morsel of motivation and empowerment; [Kastor] is one of my long time running heroes and I never want this one to end!” (Running 'n' Reading)

Great book

If you ever seen Deena Kastor, she seems to smile A LOT. After reading the book, I now know that the smile reflects her way of thinking. I am not a positive thinking person. Sometimes I get put off by people who are overly positive. But that says more about me than it does about them. The thing I discovered in this book is that I could be positive, too. In my running. In the way I interact with people. In the way I live my life. I’m kind of an old fart, but I’m also willing to try new things that will make my life hopefully more enjoyable. This is a very enjoyable book, even if you don’t run. I would highly recommend it. Thanks, Ms. Kastor. Great job!

I've always admired Deena Kastor. Afer reading this book i admire her even more!!! I loved reading her story, hearing her perspective on racing. She has amazing mental strength and was able to reach her peak performance by changing the way she talked to herself and the way she reacted to negativity. She's a total badass!! I'm so inspired.I cant wait to incorporate her methods into my training. this book will make you want to go for a long run, it'll make you want to push yourself to the next level. Thank you Deena!!!

More of an autobiography with gold nuggets

Not really. The book focused too much on Kastor's career, with many details that did not enhance the overall point of mental traning.

Which character – as performed by Deena Kastor – was your favorite?

There is really only one character in this book.

Do you think Let Your Mind Run needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

What a fine inspirational book!

This book spoke not just about running but about life. The joy that Deena encouraged in herself was so empowering for me. Thanks for sharing.

I loved walking with her journey

As a longtime runner and fan of Deena Kastor, I enjoyed hearing the behind the scenes stories of her journey. The small details and her transparency reminded me of times when running was less than "fun" and gave me a reminder to keep joy in front.

Inspiring story about running and life

As a serious recreational runner I loved this book and found so many inspiring elements in Kastor’s narrative. But this is also an account of how to live a fulfilling life, and I would say that’s the more compelling message. I highly recommend it!

Absolutely loved every minute of this book!
I have a 12year old runner who’s been running since she was 4. It’s her passion with no push from us. She loves to do it. I love Deena’s perspective as a younger runner. I can’t wait for her to read it. The success, the failures, the lessons and just the passion for living and embracing you gift.

Excellent Memoir

I love reading biographies of individuals’s true stories. As a leisure runner, this memoir is excellent! It’s not just about what she did to nourish her body for the race, but how she changed her way of thinking. She speaks of how her breathing, imagery, music, mindfulness, and human connections aided her along the way. I loved this book and it’s one I will probably re-read as it’s full of such inspiration.

amazing to see what it takes to be truly elite.

labelled a prodigy at an early age, Deena is someone who lived up to the potential, albeit with more struggles than is outwardly visible in the media. shame she never got her gold medal, but she put USA distance running back on the map.
