The capacity to endure, from 5K to 240 miles to a relationship is an elusive skill that we search for.   Runner and journalist, Alex Hutchinson, exposes us to research that has been done in recent years that will change the paradigm you may have about endurance.  He explores the relationship of the mental and the physical and what we have learned from scientists on how we can maximize our potential.

Andy Jones-Wilkins and Magda Boulet join The Nation to discuss four key chapters in the book, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance

Chapter 1: The Unforgiving Minute

Chapter 4: The Conscience Quitter

Chapter 8: Heat

Chapter 13: Belief

Ultra Adventurer and leadership coach, Brian Chontosh, and his friend TJ Murphy join The Nation for a thought-provoking discussion on endurance events:

  • Sometimes you mind has a mind of its own & can trick you
  • Your mind is always looking for comfort and satisfaction
  • Don't be reckless
  • Need to find your reason to participate - not for someone else, not for social media, it needs to be personal
  • Don't go into a race thinking you won't think about quiting
  • Predict the Future
    • Recognize it / witness it
    • Accept it
    • Put a time limit on it
  • "Don't not do now what you're going to regret later"
  • How do you lead a team from point A to point B?
