    Episode 165: Sarah Canney on Rise Run Retreat, Managing Perfectionism, and Snowshoeing

    Episode 165: Sarah Canney on Rise Run Retreat, Managing Perfectionism, and Snowshoeing

    In this episode, we interview Sarah Canney, the Founder of Rise.Run.Retreat and a Bronze medalist in the 2020 World Snowshoe Championships.

    Sarah is an athlete, coach, writer and mom with a passion for running. After battling an eating disorder for nearly ten years in her teens and early 20's, Sarah found freedom and healing. Running proved a catalyst in her transformation as she learned to rewrite the negative narrative in her head and find a unique strength within herself. As Sarah became more involved in the running community she was inspired by the connections she had made to create Rise.Run.Retreat in 2015.

    Sarah's mission is to help women gain confidence, find strength and make authentic connections through running. As the host, she creates a place for women to be inspired and experience personal growth through running.

    Sarah is also a RRCA and USATF Running Coach and since starting running has become a competitive mountain runner and was a member of the 2018 US National Snowshoe Running Team, finishing 9th at the World Snowshoe Championships in 2019.  In 2020 Sarah won the Bronze medal at the Snowshoe World Championships. You can find more from Sarah at sarahcanney.com.

    Questions we ask Sarah include:


    How did you initially get started in running and/or athletics?
    In addition to running, you are a world champion in snowshoeing! Tell us more about this sport and how it intertwines with running.
    You started Rise Run Retreat, an empowering women's running retreat with both virtual and in-person events. What initially led you to start Rise Run?
    You've spoken quite a bit about imposter syndrome, your experience with an eating disorder, and knowing your worth. Can you share more about your experiences with these topics, and what has helped you with each?
    COVID-19 has led to many changes, including cancelled races, retreats, and other events. How have you adapted your business, and what were some lessons learned along the way?
    For the moms (and future parents) out there listening, how do you strike a "balance" between having your own business and taking care of your children (work, play, and family)?
    What advice would you give to your younger (late teen, early twenties) self?
    What does being a Strong Runner Chick mean to you?

    Episode 162: Amani Jabbar on Writing, Breaking Down Barriers, and Leaving an Impact

    Episode 162: Amani Jabbar on Writing, Breaking Down Barriers, and Leaving an Impact

    Amani-Nzinga Jabbar is a professor of English, author, runner, health coach, wife,  and mother of 3. She started her running journey by walking when she was pregnant with her youngest child. At the time, she was undergoing the stress of detaching herself from an emotionally abusive marriage. The walking provided mental and physical benefits that were beyond what she expected. Since that time, she has run several 5k's, half marathons, and most recently made her marathon dreams come true.

    Amani’s latest book, I Bear Witness, tells the story of a young woman who emerges stronger after facing challenges in her life.

    You can find her on Instagram: @fithijabi

    Questions we ask Amani include:


    How did you get started in running and/or athletics?
    College as you write, was the first time you "went into the world." How was this transition and what were some factors (joining clubs, etc.) that helped you?
    In addition to running, you are also a writer, author, and professor with a BA and MA in English Literature. What inspired you to pursue a career in writing, and also in teaching?
    You wrote a book titled, "I Bear Witness," depicting the reality of a perfectly planned life. Can you share more about the journey that led to writing this book, and what some main lessons are you hope readers garner?
    In addition to your book, you wrote a powerful blog highlighting women's stories of Black women's struggles and successes titled "I am African and I can." What are some ways you see barriers being broken down by Black women, both in the sport of running and beyond?
    You recently ran your first marathon - congrats on this, and your several half marathons along the way! Tell us more about this experience and what it meant to you. Do you plan to do more of these and/or have anything upcoming this year?
    Aside from running and career, what is currently giving you life or helping you thrive? Are there any writing pieces and/or training programs you're working on and would like to share?
    Looking back, what advice would you give to your younger self?
    What does being a Strong Runner Chick mean to you?
    How can listeners connect with you?
