This week, I’m introducing you to another one of our NYAR Ambassadors, Lisa Russell. Lisa not only works full-time, but she is a wife, mom, runner, crafter, and photographer too. She definitely knows a thing or two about juggling her career and home life, so for any of you who have lots on your plate and want to make time for running, this episode is for you.
I’m quizzing Lisa on her running journey so far and the stories she was telling herself that kept her from going after her dream of running. Women so often take on the caretaker role, believing we need to put others before our own wants and needs, and Lisa was no different until she realized making time to pursue her desire to run was the best thing she could do.
Join us today as Lisa and I discuss the thought work she applied to her running and how it impacted the intentionality with which she approaches her goals. We’re diving into the importance of making time for the things we want as women, and although she’s injured right now, she’s sharing how she’s best taking care of herself as part of her training routine.
