At Run Oregon, we know that being a runner (or any kind of athlete) is about a lot more than just your arms and legs. In fact, I would argue that it is more about your heart and mind than any other body part. That is why I am so excited about this upcoming event at Concordia University. It is the inaugural session for a new speaker series focus on wellness. This first one is called “Let’s Talk About What We Don’t Talk About.”
Sometimes life can be hard. But there are simple ways to keep it all together even when things get difficult. Join us for a thought-provoking evening as we discuss the important topic of mental health and learn how to build resilience no matter what life throws your way.
Resiliency is a critical skill for getting past “the wall” at mile 20 of a marathon, for getting back on the treadmill after an injury, or for signing up for a race after a DNF.
The free event will be on Thursday, February 6 from 5:45-8pm at the Concordia University Library, and includes multiple speakers. The keynote will be Sheila Hamilton, host of the Beyond Well podcast, radio host, and author of two mental health related books. Speakers will focus on different aspects of how to build resiliency in your life.
