NJ Marathon Psyching Teams have provided an invaluable resource to runners who have chosen to participate in the full or half marathon. Runners benefit from having someone to speak with who can address pre-race jitters, fear of injury, expectations, and self-imposed pressure. Psyching teams can also assist the athlete in adopting a positive mindset for the race.
Whether you are a first time marathon or elite marathon runner, the New Jersey Psyching Team will be available to address concerns, provide encouragement and enhance your running experience. We will have questionnaires, mental tips, brochures and provide brief interventions.
