RUN LONG. CLIMB HIGH. SWIM DEEP. GO FAR.
How Endurance Sports Help You Win At Life
GO FAR collects exhilarating stories from the worldwide endurance sports career of athlete Jennifer Strong McConachie, giving insight into her life philosophy and the principles that empower her success in ultrarunning, mountaineering, swimming, and more.
The struggle to succeed and the drive to excel are at the heart of what makes someone into an endurance athlete. Their mindset—that of the adventurer, of the explorer, of the never-say-never—is what allows these athletes to go beyond the limits of what’s possible time and time again… both during and outside of events. Real life comes with its own set of challenges to meet, endure and overcome.
Jennifer Pharr Davis, National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and author of The Pursuit of Endurance, calls author Jennifer “a master of endurance and a skilled writer who shares her experiences with us so that we can take the principles of going far and apply them to our everyday life.”
The beginning of endurance, in sport and in life, is found in desire — not just to go, but to go far.
