Ali on the Run Show Episode 249: Feel-Good Friday with Jess Movold, Running Coach

Date: June 11, 2020 at 8:18 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 1

“Now more than ever is the time to learn how to be a leader for ourselves, and to learn how to handle a pivot — and thrive.”

Welcome to the second episode in a four-part series called Feel-Good Fridays. (Be sure to check out the first episode, too, with therapists Jor-El Caraballo and Rachel Gersten.) These short episodes are intended to leave you feeling lighter, better, more optimistic — whether temporarily or for the rest of your life. These conversations with experts are meant to be uplifting without being fluffy or delusional. Today, running coach and 3:13 marathoner Jess Movold is here to talk about how to find meaning, purpose, and motivation on the run right now. She talks about how to connect to your “why” as a runner, and offers up some fun workouts to add to your routine. (Warning: death by burpees!)
