    The Joy of Running with Elite Runner Sasha Gollish

    The Joy of Running with Elite Runner Sasha Gollish

    Special Guest: Sasha Gollish. Known for a diversified running career spanning from 800 meters to marathons, Sasha revealed the key components that fuel her running journey.

    Highlighting the integration of her athletic endeavors with a holistic lifestyle approach, Sasha emphasized on the significance of enjoying varied physical activities aside from running. Encouraging runners to engage in cross-training, strength training, and participate in activities like Nordic skiing, cycling, or using an elliptical, she advocated the idea of being a holistic athlete.

    Sasha also shared her experience on dealing with injuries. She reinforced the concept of appreciating changes and setbacks, and the role of embracing other activities as it contributes resilience towards injuries. This approach, she believes, prevents a 'running identity' crisis when injury prevents participation in the sport.

    The powerful blend of Sasha's disciplines, from her athletic determination to her academic contributions, reinforces the premise that a well-rounded lifestyle, combined with a love for running, fosters a more sustainable and fulfilling running journey.
