Have you ever experienced that weird, uncomfortable, depressed feeling after finishing a race you’ve spent months training for? It’s that feeling of sadness and grief when you should be feeling elation and relief for your amazing accomplishment.
In this week’s episode of The Not Your Average Runner Podcast, I’m discussing two pieces of the puzzle that I call “Post-Race Letdown Syndrome.” I’m going to show you how to avoid this feeling altogether, bringing joy to your experience of finishing a big race, and I’m going to teach you how to carry that joy into your next one!
Be sure to listen all the way through to learn how you can win a free bra from my favorite sports bra brand. I also share an essential recipe book for running fuel if, like me, you think the store-bought stuff is gross.
