"Karen helps top athletes, mostly track and field and distance runners find their "strength" and form a more positive outlook about themselves and their training," writes Hal Lifson in this May 19, 2012 Patch interview with Karen Costello. "Lifson: Do you represent any athletes that people know? Metta World Peace or Usain Bolt maybe?
Costello: (Laughing) I doubt Usain Bolt has much in the way of an inner voice of doubt! But seriously, I'm not really allowed to disclose my athletes per confidentiality. However, I can say that I'm working with three Olympic hopefuls from UCLA, several UCLA collegiate athletes, a USA National Team Water Polo player in Europe (via Skype) and several local high school athletes in various sports."
