This week, I interviewed Missy Boser, the blogger behind Getting Fit to Find Myself. In February 2012, she committed to a lifestyle change that included changing how and what she ate, as well as adding fitness to her life. She says she didn’t feel like the true transformation came until she added running to her routine. Since we both love running we took the opportunity to geek out a bit about running. If you’ve never understood why people run, maybe this will help you see what we see. And, if you've ever worried about being a "slow" runner, I hope our discussion puts you at ease.
We also talked about her winter running accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury, and how that has influenced her thinking about fitness. Missy blogs about her anxiety, so we also took a few minutes to talk about mental health. And, we talked about how crippling perfectionism can be, and why it’s important to focus on just one thing at a time (no total life overhauls!)
I loved my conversation with Missy because she's upbeat and positive, but also because she's a woman just like you and me who is always searching for ways to get the most out of herself. I know you'll be inspired by her never-give-up attitude.
As always, you can listen to the whole podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play or Sound Cloud... or just click on the player below.
