Throughout my running career, I've always struggled with keeping focus on the races that I run. I couldn’t figure out why I got so nervous and why it was effecting my running. Carl has helped tremendously. Whether it was the different drills he taught us to use or just being there to talk and give us guidance on which way to go, I knew I could count on his help. Mentally, I believe that Carl's program has truly helped me become more focused on the positive sides of running and less on the negative and the nerves that come along with that. When I get on the line now, I am more focused on what I can control and less focused on what I can’t.

I've run competitively throughout high school and at the Division III level collegiality and I have always struggled with race-day anxiety. I would get to the point where races felt like they were happening to me, instead of me running the races. When I met with Carl, he listened and I could tell he truly understood as an athlete himself. Carl taught me breathing exercises to stay focused and keep perspective on race-day and I use them every single time I toe the line now. I feel more in control, I have gotten better results and most importantly, I enjoy racing much more after receiving Carl's help.
In 7th grade, I decided to join a sport that would ultimately have a bigger impact on my life for years to come than I thought possible. I chose to run- a sport in its pure essence, at is very face value, seems simple enough. I soon discovered that was far from the case; I faced many many ups and downs, literally and mentally, in my 10 years of competitive running that would follow. However, I am beyond thankful and lucky to have had Carl Daubert by my side from the very first day of of cross country practice that faithful day in 7th grade. Throughout my high school and collegiate careers, I learned to lean on Carl before, during and after meets as he was someone I could turn to no matter if I had the worst or best race of my life. He taught me how to believe in myself and my abilities and how every race and practice served a purpose, acted as a lesson. Carl assisted me in my journey to lay the foundation of becoming a mentally strong athlete, which I truly believe is one of the main reasons to enable my future physical/athletic successes. I am forever grateful to my relationship with Carl- both as a teammate and friend on and off the track for he has been an enormous positive influence in my life in every aspect.
