Brad Stulberg is a well-being expert, author, and a contributing editor to Outside Magazine. His work has been featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Wired, and many others.
Brad also coaches entrepreneurs, executives, pro athletes, and physicians on how to be a top performer, sustainably.
Brad's focus on sustainability informs how we as runners can go after our big goals in a way that doesn’t burn us out. We all want to train harder, achieve our lofty aspirations, and do so for years to come.
In this conversation we're highlighting several of the principles from Brad's new book, including:
- Accept Where You Are to Get You Where You Want to Go
- Be Present so You Can Own Your Attention and Energy
- Embrace Vulnerability to Develop Genuine Strength and Confidence
- Build Deep Community
In this conversation, we also talk about the 4 levels of competence, the importance of your training environment, if and when you should skip the gadgets, as well as many other fascinating topics.
