Where runners become mindful runners
You don’t just like to run; you need to run.
Running is your stress reliever, your social time, your alone time, your
“clear your head” time. But as much as you love it, running sometimes feels hard.
It sometimes leaves you feeling so sore or exhausted. Often you have to sacrifice
your run to get more “important” things done.
But what price do you pay?
How do those missed runs affect your body?
How about your mood?
Running shouldn’t make you frequently hurt or chronically tired. And it shouldn’t
be so hard to find the time, energy or motivation to run. When running is a struggle,
it’s a sign that something’s not right. Let’s change that.
Running mindfully offers a better way to manage your
energy, your stress and your fitness.
Whether you’re a parent, a business leader, a caregiver or
whatever important roles you play, you are needed.
But you can’t serve others until you serve yourself first.
Mindful running helps you manage stress, fix a bad mood, refresh your mind and
strengthen your body.
Mindful running lets you be your best self and fully show up for
those who depend on you.
Mindful running lets you thrive not only as a runner, but as a person.
Hi, I’m Elinor Fish, a life-long runner and founder of Run Wild Retreats + Wellness. As life has become more complicated and hectic, it’s become necessary to proactively manage my stress. Mindfulness and running are two of the most powerful tools for managing stress and support one’s health. But if you’re like me, it can be really hard to sit on a cushion and meditate for even 5 minutes. But mindfulness and running are beautifully complimentary practices that when done together, not only improve your running, but is a powerful, sustainable, enjoyable practice that enhances all areas of your life.
