The Mind Over Matter mantra resonated with me originally, when I got into triathlons at the end of 2014. At some point in my life, I was a swimmer, a runner, and a cyclist, so when I was looking for a way to get back in shape I decided to try triathlons. It gave me the opportunity to combine three sports that I have enjoyed. Little did I know, I would fall in love with the competition and the triathlon community so much.
To this day, I have yet to compete in a race where at some point during the race, my mind did not start questioning if my body could continue. It would be easy to stop swimming and hang on to a kayak; stop pedaling and walk the bike; stop running and walk. In those moments, I repeat the words Mind Over Matter in my head to help push through to the finish line.
The Mind Over Matter Athlete brand was born August 2016, when I was driving home from the Age Group National Championship in Omaha, Nebraska back to Houston. I was reflecting on how I performed and thinking about triathletes in general and how we embody the mantra of Mind Over Matter. I originally thought I would launch the brand as Mind Over Matter Triathlete but quickly realized the mantra applies to all athletes.
We are based out of Houston, TX. Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to supporting all athletes who believe they can achieve whatever they put their mind towards.
