Becoming Passionate About Running

Episode 1


“I’m lucky enough to have been able to travel to New York to study Exercise Science and play basketball at College. I’m super passionate about exercise and sport, but I’m not as passionate about running. I have definitely formed a negative relationship with running over the years.


I’ve love to be able to run longer distances and really enjoy it. My goal is to become a better athlete and a better runner and have a positive relationship with running.”

Episode 2


“I’m two weeks into my running journey to become a better athlete and a better runner. So far, it’s been pretty hard but also really rewarding at the same time. I’m finding it challenging to push myself mentally while running, not to mention my muscles are feeling really tired. But I can already see how it’s going to benefit my basketball and carry across in my fitness in the sport.”
