Adventures, Pain and Mindset with Rebecca Rusch on The Consummate Athlete Podcast

Rebecca Rusch joined us on on The Consummate Athlete Podcast earlier this week to talk adventures, endurance, mindset and self-talk and how to go long and train for literally ANY adventure—perfect for anyone racing Dirty Kanza this weekend!

Rebecca’s Core Values
– Gear and strategy for gravel and long adventures like Iditarod, Kanza, and Leadville
– Mindset and Mantras
– Feeling unprepared for big adventures
+ more!

This is one of my favorite episodes—I was anticipating a ton of really gnarly adventure stories and some super practical training tips, but I was SO excited by how much mindset and self-talk factored into Rebecca’s life and race prep, and how developing her strong core values has really shaped all of the amazing things that she’s up to. She doesn’t do many podcasts or interviews, so to get an hour to chat with her about all things adventure was such a huge honor. You do not want to miss this episode!

And as always, let us know what you think by leaving us a rating or review on iTunes!
