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 the final episode, Dimity talks to Britt Parker, an ultra trail runner, about releasing her body from the pain of running, and, as she did so, finding peace and quiet internally and confidence athletically.

The two talk about:

  • Britt’s success at the 50-mile distance and her subsequent goals—and falls;
  • Processing the anger, frustration, and shame when you are in chronic pain;
  • The community and structure around strength training classes; and
  • How Britt returned to the Trans-Rockies in 2023 after sitting it out in 2022.
