It seems to me that most of the problems in the world boil down to one thing: "other people". When you're running, there are no "other people" so you can make that your happy place! And, as long as you can still run, you can always go back to it....
Do you run for your mental health? What has running helped you overcome?

Bridget we all fear that people will hear our slice of crazy and run for the hills, leaving us standing alone wondering what happened. But if we're not careful we just find that we're so scared to tell anybody that we tell nobody and feel isolated...
I hear you Bridget I have been on similar ground. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder years ago and was on medication for about a year. I too find solace in running. I have learned to trust myself well and running is the one thing that makes me...
Bridget, don't be apprehensive, TS people are here for you through thick and thin. Depressions a tough battle and you have achieved a heck of a lot in a short space of time, look back, remind yourself and smile. You will climb back on top and con...
Just think of someone else is doing all that you are achieving, TS and real life. Then think about how proud of them you would feel, knowing they are doing amazing things even when they are feeling a bit down. Best thing to see the dr, but also...
Hey Bridget, just got to keep on trucking, and I think that is what I find TS helps me with, for those runs/rides that I do not really feel like going out on, and each time I do go of course it feels good to have at least completed something again...
In the depths of another bout of depression and the only time I feel "normal" is mid run, if only I could just keep running right?! However life must be participated in no matter how hard that is right now and I feel extremely isolated in my craz...

I love 8k's: it's a quick, fast intermediate distance. I'm not running this weekend because I have to work, and just finished Christmas shopping. Merry Christmas and Happy New year all !!

Run 5km then walk 2km. Finish of with core exercises and stretches.
Running helps me cope with the daily stress of school, trying to find a job, and trying to get away from a life I refuse to live. It gives me some peace and brings back my sanity so I can keep dealing with the issues...
Azucena M Thought I'd share my story of my recent insanity. Over my spring break I went out, partied, and completely forgot about my workouts...bad idea. I spent the weekend stressing out over dumb things and being in the worst mood I have been in since I started running. I have learned my lesson and will hope to never repeat this again! Running really does keep me sane lol :D

I am so excited I'm not the only one. I tell people I run for my mind. I have Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Issues, A.D.D., and Clinical Depression.
Running regulates my mood, keeps me calm. It also stops me from panicking and having moments where...

40km in 5 days so far this week (staycation week) and have a 10mile hike planned for tomorrow :D
Running right now is keeping me balanced and relatively stress free in what is a very unsettling time for my family. My mum recently has been diagnosed with Cancer, so time is spent largely ensuring I permanently ha...
