Far Better

Self-Discovery through the Power of Endurance Sports

Why race if you know you won’t win? To keep learning more about yourself. Racing is a metaphor for life—you learn to pivot and evolve while navigating the ups and downs. The racing and training journey teaches you mental, physical, and emotional lessons about yourself, which cultivates awareness, self-love, and trust that you can apply to all aspects of your life. And all this is accomplished alongside other people and through your relationships. 

In Far Better, Miranda Bush shares her story of being a longtime athlete and endurance coach, and her personal evolution through the sport and in life. She shares the lessons she has learned through exposure to and participation in endurance athletics and then teaches you how you can apply those lessons to your racing career and your overall well-being. Her mental tips, delivered with knowledge, experience, and empathy, will help prepare you for your next race while simultaneously cultivating an understanding of your humanity. The vital impact of relationships is woven throughout the book in order to remind us all that belonging is essential to our existence. Life is a race, and you don’t want to miss one moment of it.
