What lessons can running teach you about overcoming crises in your life? Today I explore that question with Julia Becker Collins, an avid runner and endurance athlete, high-achiever, and COO of Vision Advertising, a busy marketing firm where she does everything from managing day-to-day operations to talking marketing and business strategy with clients. When she’s not in the office, she’s often on the road training for an ultra-marathon. This year, she was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, and the treatment involved has forced her to slow down, which isn’t something she’s used to.
In our conversation, we discuss:
How to get started with running when you live a busy lifestyle - Overcoming physical and mental challenges that come throughout training - Developing running as a practice and identity - How to find the joy in running - The importance of prioritizing self-care when you’re a busy professional, and how to fit running into the work day - What running can teach you about overcoming moments of crisis in life and work.
