In episode 23 we kick off our focus on sport for development personal stories by speaking to our friend, Vegan runner and fellow Cricket Without Boundaries volunteer Jhon Cosgrove (@pickledjhon on social media).
We talk to Jhon about his love of running going from a reluctant jogger to a sub 3 hour marathon obsessive. We discuss the benefits of parkrun, how his new habit has helped his mental health and his positive use of social media. We also explore the particular benefits of individual sports versus our more familiar territory of team pursuits.
Jhon also joins us for a slightly irreverent quiz on running – will he be able to beat out the regulars quizzers Sara and Lee?
We would love to hear from others who have used running to help their health, or if you have any general questions or comments, you can get in touch with us on:
Our upcoming episodes will be focusing more on hearing the personal stories who have lived and breathed sport for social good. We’ve got some exciting stories in the pipeline!
