This is an important episode and we are fortunate to have a friend, Cory Reese, join us to talk about depression. Cory is an accomplished ultra runner and author of three books:
Nowhere Near First
Into the Furnace
Stronger than the Dark
Cory introduces us to his friend and physiology expert (and ultra runner), Catherine Van Tassell, social worker, PA with experience in psychology at the University of Utah. She is also a master trainer for iFIT Mind.
This episode should help everyone listening. If you suffer from depression, know someone who is, wonder if you are, or just want to help anyone that might need it. This podcast is for you.
