Still I Run with Sasha Wolff (#34)
Updated: Jan 30
In the final episode of Season 1, I had the opportunity to interview Sasha Wolff from Still I run.
Sasha Wolff is the founder of Still I Run – Runners for Mental Health Awareness. Still I Run, a community of warriors promoting the benefits of running for mental health, was founded in 2016 after Sasha discovered the benefits of running after a brief hospitalization for depression and anxiety. Still I Run began as a Facebook page and website, and has evolved into a non-profit with over 20,000 people in the community. Sasha is a partner to Greg and together they’re raising three young children in the mitten state fondly known as Michigan. In her “spare” time she runs for her mental health, enjoys Lake Michigan, and spending time with her family and friends.
Sasha opens up about her mental health journey, and how running helped impact her own mental health struggles
We discuss the origins of the community of “Still I run”. Why Sasha started this group of runners, the awareness around mental health, and some of the programs that Still I run organizes across North America.
We discuss some of Sasha’s tips surrounding communication and mental health.
