Megan Roche on Training Happy, Injury, Failure and (Yay!) Dogs on The Consummate Athlete Podcast

I could not have been more excited to have run coach and badass MD and racer Megan Roche on the podcast last week! Megan has been on my must-interview list for ages, because she’s part of the dynamic duo behind The Happy Runner, one of my absolute favorite reads from this past year. She and her husband David Roche (my coach!) run an awesome coaching business that’s based largely around positivity (but honest positivity, not fake!) and hard freaking work, and her journey through medical school while racing was awesome to read about.

PSST, READ THE BOOK: Notes from The Happy Runner: Love the Process, Get Faster, Run Longer by David and Megan Roche

But we don’t just talk about happy stuff—we got DEEP into the hard topics like body image and healthy eating for runners and athletes, how to cope with a bad race or a failure (like my recent La Cloche attempt!) and dealing with injury and moving past it with gratitude. There are tons of practical takeaways plus stuff to think about, and if you’re an endurance athlete of any type, it’s worth a listen!
