Going the Distance: The mental side of marathons

April 27, 2011

This week in "Going the Distance"-- the mental side of running marathons.

The Vermont City Marathon is less than a month away. About 3,600 people have registered to run the entire race. A big part of marathoning though has nothing to do with your legs-- it involves your head. How do you psych yourself up to run 26.2 miles?

Jeremy Sibold is a sports psychologist and professor at UVM. He appeared on The :30 to talk about the mental side of marathons. Watch the video of the live interview for more.
