Kendra draws upon her own experience of over-coming an eating disorder, and changing her relationship with her self, body, food, and faith to help women re-connect to themselves so they can fully express their truest self.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this Real, Raw, and Related conversation Kendra shares:

  • How running gave her connection and community, and became such an integral part of her identity that she forced herself to continue even when it didn’t feel good any more.
  • How running became a way for expectations, shame, and fears to manifest themselves in a seemingly acceptable way.
  • The importance of finding ways of moving your body (and living in general!) that work for you, not against you.
  • How to start having conversations about the underlying issues present in eating disorders, in environments where they are prevalent.
