Addie Bracy holds a master's degree in sport and performance psychology from the University of Denver, where she was trained and mentored by some of the leading sport psychologists in the field. She has earned the Certified Mental Performance Consultant designation from the Association for Applied Sport Psychology. She has provided mental performance consulting to elite athletes in swimming, basketball, softball, track and field, and ultrarunning and has worked as an extern at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

Bracy has been a competitive distance runner for two decades. She was team captain at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, and after college she qualified for the Olympic trials--twice in the marathon and once in the 10K. She has also been selected to compete for many world championships as part of USA national teams. She has represented Brooks Running and Salomon, and she currently represents Nike Trail. After transitioning to trail and mountain running, she quickly moved to ultradistance and has achieved podium finishes at some of the most competitive races in the country, such as the Lake Sonoma 50-mile run and The North Face 50-mile run. Her rΓ©sumΓ© also includes the following accomplishments:
  • Three-time USATF Women's Mountain Runner of the Year (2016, 2017, 2018)
  • Three-time USATF National Champion
  • Ten-time selection to the USA national team

  • Ninth place in the Western States 100-mile event (2019)
Bracy has also been involved in coaching for the last decade. Immediately after graduating from college, she spent three years assisting with the women's distance program as a volunteer coach at UNC. She then moved to Boulder, Colorado, and cofounded Hudson Elite, a postcollegiate elite training group working with athletes of all ages and abilities, including several elite athletes and Olympic trials marathon qualifiers. She has coached at the high school level, including two years as a head cross country coach. She assisted world-renowned coach Brad Hudson as a coauthor for his book, Coach Hudson's Little Black Book, which Competitor Magazine named one of the Seven New Must-Read Running Books in 2016.
