Episode 130 - Movement is Medicine

July 16, 2019

This week, we catch up with Keith Johnston, and frankly, we’re a little out of breath. That’s because he started Running2bWell, a running group open to all fitness levels that offers free training and is geared toward people in recovery. He talks about the science behind how physical activity improves mental well-being, along with the health benefits of connections,  and this group offers both of these things, as inclusiveness is the main focus of activities. Also, those who show up to three running meetups get a new pair of running shoes, he adds.

The group is hosting the Buzzard Beach 5K Saturday, July 20 at Munroe Falls Metro Park, 521 S. River Road, in Munroe Falls. To register, visit http://bit.ly/2H77qPV. Registration is open until the event starts.
