The Why Behind Running is Cheaper Than Therapy

by | Oct 26, 2020 | Podcast

Welcome to the first episode of Running is Cheaper than Therapy!

I created this podcast to educate, share my love of life and all that it entails, inspire, and promote movement and its various forms from a mental health aspect. I encourage you to listen to this podcast while you’re walking, cycling or running, or any form of movement!

More importantly, I want to connect with you and others who’ll bring inspirational stories and experiences we can all relate to; people who have overcome obstacles to make it to their finish lines.  

In this episode, I’m going to share my story and how exercise, particularly running, has helped me cope and get back up in the race after losing my mother from breast cancer.

Running is cheaper than therapy and it certainly is! I’m your host Ouida Brown, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon, a runner, a triathlete, and a sports enthusiast ! And I hope you join me on this journey!

  • What to expect from this podcast
