I met up with writer and runner Cindy Kuzma in Chicago to talk about running injuries, mental strategies, and how to thrive despite the obstacles.

I first met Cindy Kuzma, an incredible writer and runner and genuinely inspiring person, when she was interviewing me for a Runner’s World article she was writing about Runstreet Art Runs. We’ve kept in touch since and I’ve had the pleasure of Cindy coming to several of our Art Runs, in Chicago and NYC. Cindy is now continuing to conquer the world one word and mile at a time, as she has a very interesting running book about injuries coming out, as well as a podcast and online injury support group, The Injured Athletes Club.

Cindy’s upcoming book, called Rebound: Train Your Mind to Bounce Back Faster From Sports Injuries, is a project she co-wrote with mental skills coach Carrie Jackson Cheadle. I sat down with Cindy in Chicago recently to discuss her book, injuries, mental effects of injuries, and how we can learn to thrive despite running injuries.
