Dr. G. I run distance and am an over thinker, at least that’s what all my coaches say. They must be right, because I have been struggling with my racing since the summer before my sophomore year in high school. I would think too much before my races and then way too much during the race. As a result my race times have been slow and my practice times good. It frustrated me and was confusing. In the middle of winter track last year I found your ‘Using Your Head workbook for Track & Field!’ I have to say you have opened my eyes and helped me understand what I was doing wrong. But more important, you talked about things I could do to handle the over thinking! Now my race times are just like my practice times and the best news of all is I am being recruited to run in college! I don’t know how to thank you! Your book saved my sport! – Jake, West Virginia

I’m a pole vaulter and my coach used to joke about me being “fragile” mentally. I guess that’s because when I’d get to a certain height, (12 feet) I’d start to freak out. My mom got me your new book, Using Your Head…Track and Field and I can’t believe what a difference it has made for me! It has helped me put my over-thinking and doubts aside. I’m much calmer as the bar starts going up and the best part of all is my coach is totally impressed! He keeps asking me who I am and what did I do with Jenna? I don’t even know how to thank you for this book! – Jenna D, Florida
