#379: Runner Identity + Its Effect on Health

Sarah and Ellison jump into the topic of identifying as a runner—and how wearing that mantle affects your health and lifestyle choices. The duo talks with a researcher plus two real-life mother runners, addressing issues like:

-ways to get comfortable calling yourself a runner;

-why ID’ing as a runner helps make exercise a stick-with-it habit;

-how a health scare made one BAMR jump on the exercise bandwagon;

-the ways being a single parent stripped one woman of her athletic identity;

-how one mother runner is trying to get over her “imposter syndrome.”

Books recommended in the intro conversation are Less by Andrew Sean Greer; American Spy: A Novel by Lauren Wilkinson; Haunting Paris by Mamta Chaudhry; and How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. The runner-ID conversation begins at 16:25.

  1. Shannon – I too am a single parent of 3 (sole custody) and I have grappled with the guilt over choosing my ex for many many years, and with the relentlessness. This is the first time I’ve heard someone else express this too. Thank you for sharing x
