Ali on the Run Show Episode 22: How I Finally Got Over My Body Issues

On this episode, I talk about my history with body-related issues — starting when I was a young dancer to my college years and my post-collegiate experience with exercise addiction — and what I did to get past them. I spent years obsessing over how I looked and constantly checking in with my appearance — and what I disliked about it. Now I’m at a place where I may not always be totally “body positive,” but I’m at least body neutral, and that feels incredibly freeing. Join me!

  1. I am so hard on myself. I have never been thin. My 10 yr old daughter is a dancer. She is tall for her age & not stick thin. I worry about her all the time but she does not even think about her body — she only worries about dancing and if she can do it. I am SO hoping that she it not plagued with these issues too. At age 42, it’s time to stop beating myself up! Thanks for a great podcast. you are awesome!!!!!!

  2. AMEN SISTA! I listened to this as I ran this afternoon and couldn’t agree more with so much of what you said. Why are we so hard on ourselves.
    Another great episode, keep them coming!

  3. Really enjoyed this one too. I also thought the pt one was also great-really informative. Well done on your not -5k PB. my boyfriend ran a 2.37 marathon….and then found out the course was a little short!! He has since got his official pb and you will get your 5k one too.
