Summary

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.

well worth a listen

This is a book written by a guy who has been there and done it with bells on. He offers practical insights into why an ultra mindset can be applied and be extremely useful in day to day life.

Great Advice

Where does The Ultra Mindset rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

What other book might you compare The Ultra Mindset to and why?

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.

What does Brian Hutchinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never listen in one sitting, but this is a short book and got through it pretty quickly. It was enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

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.

Well tested advice

Very practical methods of acheiving goals, delivered by the author within the frame of ultra endurance sports. Travis Macy shows how he came to live these steps and goals and the falls along the way. It's not just for athletes - I enjoyed the book but will still never run 100miles!
