From the Author
I designed Flow State Runner to include a large amount of coaching input, from a super hero's utility belt of mind tools to guidance on training and workout design. I also dive into the topic of racing, where I provide pre- and post-race rituals and other valuable coaching insights. My aim is to help you advance your running practice in a sustainable manner that leads to higher performance and increased experiences of flow while on the road, trails, or in life in general.
This book is animated by what I've learned and developed on my 20-year quest to maximize fulfillment in my life, to pursue epic challenges, and to push past what I thought were my genetic limits. I don't consider myself an elite runner -- far from it. While I do have a collection of race medals across all distances -- from my coveted first 5K to extreme ultra marathons and stage races -- none are for podium finishes. Development as a runner was a challenge for me -- nothing came easily, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Overcoming this challenge yielded my special journey of learning and enabled me to become an effective coach for thousands of runners in workshops and my online coaching practice.
Driven by a passion to unlock a creative and highly effective set of coaching tools, my immersion into the world of human performance, inner coaching, and flow led me to pursue new experiences in skydiving, surfing, learning new musical instruments, motorcycle superbike racing, skateboarding, dancing, gourmet cooking, handstand training, and meditation. This eclectic mix of pursuits offered many opportunities to study fear, the process of overcoming struggle, and ultimately performing at one's highest potential.
My passion is coaching. It's the fire behind a rocket-fueled approach to life that leaves me buzzing with each opportunity to work in-person or virtually with runners, athletes, moms and dads, teens, executives, and anyone else who wants to learn a new paradigm and improve themselves. I've directed that passion into developing this resource to have a profound impact on your running.

The book of course also has advice on running mechanics, breathing, etc but, for me, its real power comes from the focus on the mental aspects of running. As a relatively experienced runner, I was glad to see many concepts I had been developing on my own in the book. However, what I was beginning to "see" in pieces, Jeff Grant has developed into a functional system! Perfect. I'm a big believer in not reinventing the wheel and I'm sure this book has and will continue to save me quite a bit of time with regard to the whole discovery/assimilation process.
So I would happily recommend Flow State Runner to both new and experienced runners. Read it, put the system to work and then read it again, tweaking and customising things along the way. It’s helped to make running more enjoyable again and made me a better runner which is more than I can say about the last pair of running shoes I splashed out on!
Jeff shares his personal experiences starting out as an out-of-shape IT professional completing his first 5k, and takes you on the journey with him as he engages his own inner coach to become an elite athlete, competing in races and completing endurance events all over the world. He teaches you what "flow state" is, how to achieve it in training, and maintain it even when you are fatigued and struggling.
Flow State Runner integrates mindfulness and visualization into your races and training runs, and elevates these to the same importance as stretching and weekly mileage.
If your running has become routine and you are looking to add that spark back to your training and racing, or if you currently dread running and can't figure out why so many people enjoy it, this book is for you!
