Anxiety is a natural part of athletics. And what you do with that anxiety can make the difference between winning and losing, or between feeling intimidated and feeling joy.

In this workshop, Coach Grant Holicky and Chris Case have an engaging discussion about race-day anxiety, ways to manage it, techniques to overcome it or even use it to your advantage, and other methods for becoming a mentally strong athlete.

They first define anxiety and why we feel it. Then they discuss ways to leverage it, from visualization techniques to reframing. Finally, they address how routine can help you manage anxiety, and whether your motivation and purpose for toeing the line is a healthy one.
