Endorsements "Sage Rountree has made a career of filling the gaps in guidance for endurance athletes, and she has done it again with this comprehensive and practical guide. Whether your usual race goal is to finish or to win, Sage's collected wisdom will give you a huge boost toward consistently performing at your personal best in competition. Whatever is holding you back from racing as well as you could, you will find a way through it in these pages." -from the foreword by Matt Fitzgerald, author of "Racing Weight" and "The New Rules of Marathon and Half Marathon Nutrition" "Runners spend so much time on training: week after week after week. Sometimes, it seems that that's all we talk about. But the end goal is the race. Unfortunately, we don't always put in the same dedication to planning a successful race as we do planning our training. Racing Wisely provides that often missing ingredient of race preparation and will help runners put all their great training to good use when it counts-the race. Sage Rountree understands performance, and this guide will prove invaluable for goal-oriented athletes." -Greg McMillan, coach, McMillan Running, and author of "YOU (Only Faster)" ""Racing Wisely" delivers exactly what you hope for from a smart yogi-runner-triathlete: thoughtful insight about goals, intentions, and actions told in an engagingly conversational, down-to-earth style. I love that this book offers practical and philosophical advice for the whole spectrum of athletes, from serious goal-driven competitors to more experiential but just as passionate casual athletes. A great addition to the thinking runner's library." -Tish Hamilton, Executive Editor, "Runner's World"
