It was traumatic. It was uncomfortable, painful, and frightening, and Matt loves to bring it up.
Alright fine, maybe — now that’s it’s over — it’s also a little funny.
Of course I’m talking about the groin story we’ve vaguely teased over the past month. Matt has finally convinced me is worth sharing on this podcast.
But while the story might start with the groin (or actually a 50K ultramarathon) it’s about much more than that. The real story is about mindfulness, letting go of pain and discomfort, and how to handle an injury that leaves you unable to run.
That’s the part of this dreadful, embarrassing story we want to share with you today.
Here’s what we talk about in this episode:
- The truth about Doug’s groin
- What we can learn from a terrible case of poison ivy
- Can mindfulness help with running?
- Where to put your pain
- Untangling your happiness from your goals
