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 in its various forms from a mental health aspect.

Also, I want to connect my listeners with others who will 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 about how running, has helped me cope and return to happy go lucky “Ouida” 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!
