Elinor Fish on Mindful Running


Elinor Fish, the former editor of Trail Runner Magazine,took the leap in 2010 and left her career to launch Run Wild Retreats with the mission to help people reduce stress and live a healthier life through mindful running. To do this, her business model was tweaked over time, and we’ll talk about that. She eventually found the sweet spot and is now offering retreats to fantastic destinations such as Iceland, the Dolomites and coast of Spain (SIGH!!!!!) where she coaches the practice of mindful running.

We’re going to talk about mindful running, what it is and how it benefits you as well. You’re also going to learn what kept her going in times of uncertainty, how to deal with your own stress while running, and how to put together a training program that works for you. 

Get ready for an enjoyable journey around the world, trail running from your ear buds.

With that, let’s listen in and gear up for what’s next:
