    I’m not sure we’re related (not many Ecclestons out there), but know that me and my tribe of Ecclestons are cheering for you!

      Thank you!! It’s actually my husband’s side of the family that is Eccleston, so I don’t think we’re related, but I love the support!

    I love your writing style, Amanda! I sent “Embrace the Mental Side of Running” for my Varsity state champs girls to read just now. As a self-coached athlete (’96 Olympian) I, too, scoured the libraries and internet for all I could learn about training. I’d love to chat with you sometime and compare notes. CONGRATS on the O. Trials 1500m final best race of your career – to date 🙂
