Travis Macy has summited glacial peaks in the French Alps, rappelled into limestone caves in China, and raced through parched deserts in Utah. In 2013 he famously won the Leadman Series, a combination of nearly 300 miles of high-altitude trail running and mountain biking over the course of five epic endurance races. Macy achieved all of these victories without elite professional training or even exceptional strength, speed, or flexibility. His secret? A precise outlook he calls the "ultra mindset", a set of simple principles for daily life that includes embracing fear, rewriting the stories we tell ourselves, and mastering the art of asking for help.
By practicing these principles in all areas of life, anyone can successfully achieve goals that might have otherwise seemed impossible.

I thought it was well done, had a ton of good ideas for the average athlete. This is an easy, short listen but well worth the time.
My Life on the Run, Eat to Win, Born to Run were similar in tone. What sets this book apart is that all of the ideas can be used by the amateur. Don't be put off my his ultra credentials if you are a weekend runner. The concepts are adaptable and they work.
I thought he did a good job. He didn't wound too polished, which lent credibility to the reading. This is not a literature book, its more of a memoir and he did a great job.
I never listen in one sitting, but this is a short book and got through it pretty quickly. It was enjoyable.
There are a lot of running books and most are not very good. Many are just a recap of a freakish athlete and their accomplishments. As an amateur athlete who does Spartan Races and marathons I am looking for inspiration and information I can use to further my humble goals. This book provided that without any fame adulation usually associated with this category. I recommend this book to any amateur athlete who wants to improve their performance and mindset. Well done.
