Brave Athlete...Calm the F*ck Down and Rise to the Occasion is a manual for your brain that addresses 13 of the most common mental conundrums all athletes face in their everyday training and racing (regardless of ability level). Chapters are devoted to things like:
Having Thoughts and Feelings You Don’t Want
Learning to Embrace The Suck
Hardening the F*ck Up
Having Low Athlete Self-Esteem
