For a long time, Grand Rapids runner Sasha Wolff kept her depression a secret. "It was a diagnosis I was ashamed of and rarely talked about," Sasha says of the diagnosis she received in 2003 at age 18. "Because of that, I carried my burden of shame around for years." But Sasha, who grew up in California, realized she needed to do something to cope with her depression, and ultimately, the shame she felt. She started to run in 2012, and in 2015 ran her first marathon. Sasha joins Heather on the show to talk about her journey, which has included creating a community of runners -- Still I Run -- helping others combat depression and anxiety through our sport. "We're a community of warriors determined to take control of our physical and mental health while also breaking the stigma surrounding people who live with mental illness," she says. Since taking up running in 2012, Sasha has run two more marathons as well as completed a half Ironman, 10 half marathons, a 25K and countless 10Ks and 5Ks. She also shares on the show her involvement with Pine Rest Mental Health Services, and how she has a team of runners helping raise awareness at this year's Fifth Their Riverbank Run.
