Committing to the Process Helped Joshua St John Overcome PTSD & Depression


Today I’m running with friend/listener of the show, and a man who recently finished his 1st ultra, Joshua St John.

Joshua has only been running for a handful of years (at the time of this recording), and after getting out of the military his health took a pretty serious turn for the worst. He was taking medication for PTSD and depression, one of the side effects of the medications was weight gain gain.

After some time, he knew he needed to make a change for his health and he started walking.

At that point, it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that vacuuming the house was physically demanding, so simply getting out of the house and walking was a very positive step for Joshua both mentally and physically.

The hardest step is always the one out your front door, and that never changes. ~Joshua St John #runchat Share on X Read more
