Why You Should Have a Triathlon Alter Ego

The solution to mental blocks? Pretend to be someone else. "Fake it until you make it."

Some of us don’t feel like athletes. Some of us don’t feel worthy enough to have a coach. Some of us don’t feel like we should be out there because we’re not good enough, fast enough, etc. The solution to these mental blocks? Pretend to be someone else. “Fake it until you make it.” Dr. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson are here to help you win the brain fight with their new book, The Brave Athlete.
