Good Morning! Good Day!  Welcome back to my blog.  If you are new here, welcome to my blog. 

This month we have been discussing goals: setting goals, adjusting as needed, and the types of goals.  To wrap up this month of goal-speak, I’m introducing you to a new book!  Just released on September 25, 2019, Gabe Cox releases her first book, Mind Over Marathon – Overcoming Mental Barriers in the Race of Life.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Gabe Cox has a dream.  Not just any dream, a huge dream.  She dreams of running in the Boston Marathon.  The Boston Marathon is not just any marathon, but outside of the Olympic Games, it’s the Grand-daddy of them all.  The first Boston Marathon was held in 1897, and it was inspired by the 1896 Olympic Games where the first marathon was run. 

Not anyone can run this race.  An athlete must run a qualifying time and apply to run.  From all the race applicants, only the top applicants are approved to run the race.  Those that are approved are considered elite athletes in the sport. 

While Gabe takes us through the ups and downs of her attempt at qualifying for the Boston Marathon, she shares the various mindset strategies she used along the way.  The author not only shares what worked, but she openly divulged what didn’t work and how she adjusted throughout her journey. 

Yes, the author is an athlete, but this book is not just for athletes.  This book is for anyone who inspires to live life to its fullest.  As Gabe states in the introduction, “Life is like a marathon, not a sprint.”  All the strategies described in this text may be applied to all areas of your life.

Mindset Over Marathon goes beyond the author’s experiences, providing examples that highlight how others succeed using the principles and strategies throughout the book.  Additionally, Gabe freely shares her sources of inspiration with the audience in such a way that brings the reader right into her world.   

This is a complete manual that can take you from ordinary to extraordinary.  The text teaches you how to set and crush goals, inspires you to believe in yourself, and shows you how to find the path in your own journey.  Each chapter ends with a devotional, interesting questions that encourage you to think about your own life, and practical action steps that you can begin right away.    If you are looking for the complete package, athlete or not, then I highly recommend Mind Over Marathon.  Ready, Set, Go!

Note: The book can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble. 

I must also note that this is not a sponsored blog post.
