Tighten Up Your Mental Game - Sharpen the Sword

Dr. George Carlson from Sports Performance Strategies
Dr. Carlson specializes in teaching and enhancing nine specific mental skills he has identified as necessary for performing well in sport and in non-sport performance situations.
Dr. Carlson is a licensed social worker who has been practicing for over 25 years. He is a former college and minor league professional hockey player as well as a youth, travel, high school and college coach. Dr. Carlson has developed insight into the mental aspects of playing sports at an advanced level. Using assessment tools developed for athletes, he helps the athlete determine where their mental game can be improved and develops a customized plan to allow the athlete to learn new skills that support growth.
As we all know, triathlon is more than just swimming, biking and running…it takes a lot of mental fortitude to finish any distance race. For some racing can cause a lot of anxiety thinking about the swim
For others just keeping focused through all 3 disciplines can be difficult. But everyone could benefit by keeping that little voice in your head quite when it’s telling you its ok to stop pushing when the race starts getting hard – that alone can make the difference between an average day and a great race.
Allison Eatough, a freelance writer for the Baltimore Sun.
Allison is working on story for an upcoming health and style section about the popularity of triathlons in this area. They are timing it to run before the Columbia Triathlon on May 21.
They want to include if/how triathlons are growing locally, why local athletes are moving into the sport and what resources athletes are using to help with training. Also: Which demographics are seeing the biggest growth in triathlons and what are a few examples of the health benefits of participating. They would like to get some photos of local athletes training, as well and will hopefully be at next week's RBR to take photos

If you were unable to attend our banquet in February then you missed out on the awesome giveaways including stemless wine glasses! Well we have a few left over and we've decided to give them away to our club members. All that we ask for is a $10 donation to MMTC per glass or two for$15. In addition we will be giving away some sweet bicycle bottle openers for a $3 donation!
