#375: Running and Depression + Anxiety

Sarah and Dimity talk with three mother runners, including the pregnant founder Still I Run, about their journeys with depression and anxiety and how running helps them keep moving forward. Listen and learn:
-what it is about running that gives them each a boost;
-how Still I Run is fighting the stigma attached to mental illness;
-the power of writing and journaling;
-how one of them stopped “catastrophizing” a running injury; and
-the beauty of observing and appreciating the “mundane” parts of life.
In the intro, hear about Dimity’s hike up a 14er. The first of three guests enters this important conversation at 17:55.
