Have you had to—or are you contemplating—giving up running because of injury and/or chronic pain? The Final Finish Line, a special four-part series, will be cathartic and helpful as you figure out your next steps.

In episode #3, Dimity about easing the mental side of stopping running with Kim Dawson, PhD, a professor of sports/exercise psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.

Among other things, the two chat about:

  • Why Kim is an advocate of healthy transitions—and why they’re harder than we think;
  • How to cultivate a holistic self-identity, so you’re not too reliant on one aspect (like running);
  • Why the rate of change isn’t never as quick as you’d like it to be; and
  • How Kim is expanding her athletic world far outside of running.
