Steve Magness is the head coach for the University of Houston cross country team.  He also coaches several professional runners, such as Jackie Areson, Sara Hall, and Tommy Schmitz. He's been called "The Mad Scientist of Running" by OutsideOnline.com for his intense love of digging into physiology and psychology.  It took about one minute for him to warm up and dive deep into his unique and exciting theories that go far deeper than just running.  He talks about a winner's mentality and how so much of endurance starts above the shoulders.  His new book Peak Performance will be out soon and if it's anything like this interview, it should be a best seller. At one point he said, "I have a theory for everything," and that's the truth.  Enjoy.
