Abstract

In the running community, specifically female collegiate distance runners, there is a stigma around mental health. Many coaches and even athletes downplay these illnesses or completely disregard them as a whole. Mental health and physical health go hand in hand and are equally important. This presentation will explore the relationship between pre- performance anxiety and athletic performance. This presentation will discuss the impacts of not addressing these illnesses and how to prevent them. One of the most common stigmas is pre-performance anxiety. Many people assume that when someone is at the top, nothing can shake them. By putting an emphasis on educating, valuing, and implementing resources, this will benefit female collegiate athletes in relieving pre- performance anxiety.
