Angela Murphy Leans on Running to Help Navigate the Ups & Downs of Life

On today’s episode of the podcast, I’m joining a Angela Murphy for a few easy miles.

Angela Murphy

Angela Murphy-Age Group Winner!

I’ve “known” Angela for awhile online, mostly through Twitter, and I was really excited to have a chance to “run” with her today.

Angela has only been running for a few years, but in that time she’s gone from the Couch to 5k program to ultra marathoner! #impressive

Along the way, Angela has developed into the kind of person that “needs” running, especially when it comes to helping to get through the highs and lows of life. And one of the lows has been real low, as you’ll hear in our chat.

We talked about a whole host of goods, bads, and a handful of in betweens during our chat. Here are some of the highlights of our run.

  • Why she stopped running as a kid, and didn’t start again until she was in her 40s
  • Getting started with Couch to 5k and training with her sister via text message
  • The power of setting a “Cool Impossible” goal
  • Making some rookie mistakes running her first trail race–an ultra no less!
  • The reason she started writing a blog
  • Another run streak in her future?

Check out Angela’s brand new blog (which is already one of my favorites!) or connect with her on Twitter and/or Instagram.
