This week, I'm interviewing Deena Kastor, the 2004 Olympic Marathon Bronze Medalist and the American record holder in the marathon. She is also the author of, "Let Your Mind Run. A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory." As she tells stories from her lifetime of running, she incorporates lessons about optimism, and how she used mindset to transform her running and her life. 

Training your mind to be more optimistic is one of the best things you can do for your running, your career, your marriage… anywhere you want to be more successful. This is another interview that runners and non-runners will benefit from. 

In addition to talking about optimism and mindset, I asked Deena some questions that will help masters runners gain a competitive edge.
