Runner Identity + Its Effect on Health (Rerun)

This is the episode for anyone who has ever felt like an imposter at a race or who struggles to declare they’re a runner. Sarah and Ellison talk with a researcher, plus two real-life mother runners, addressing issues like:
-ways to get comfortable calling yourself a runner;
-why self-identifying as a runner boosts exercise adherence;
-how a health scare made one gal jump on the exercise train;
-the ways being a single parent stripped one woman of her athletic identity; and,
-how one guest is trying to get over her “imposter syndrome.”
 
In a freshly recorded intro (interview portion of ep originally dropped in 9/19), Sarah shares a funny shoe story and Katie talks up her newest athletic passion. The convo with the first guest starts at 16:08.
