On this week's podcast we're joined by one of Ireland's leading distance runners Kevin Dooney. Starting with a recap of his running career to date, we then get into an in-depth discussion around mental health, and Dooney's own battle with depression. In an open and honest interview, Dooney talks about the moment he realised something was not quite right with his mental health, and charts it's progression to date, and the methods he uses to manage it. We get insights into how both writing and talking have helped him become more self-aware, and how seeking the joy in running will remain a goal for the future.
