In this episode Dorothy Keith talks about the challenges after losing a best friend. Not just a best friend though, a running partner, someone to help offer accountability, motivation; someone to laugh with and spend time together with.
Dorothy lost all motivation to run after the sudden passing of her friend over the holiday season. But she built herself back up and found new motivation to run, not just with but for her friend as she raised money to a kids art fund that her best friend would have loved.
She also talks about how nutrition played a vital role in excelling as a runner; how after she started to pay attention to what she was putting in her body, she could heal quicker, recover faster, improve on her running times and feel energized throughout the day!
