Episode 482: Vanessa Corcoran – It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint; Road to the Marathon and PhD

Vanessa Corcoran is on the podcast today! Vanessa is a long-time listener of the show.

Vanessa wrote the book It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint, My Road to the Marathon and PhD. It’s the story of taking on two challenges, training for the marathon and beginning and finishing a doctoral program in Medieval History. Although both challenges may seem in stark opposition to one another, they share a lot in common and require a lot of overcoming significant mental roadblocks.

I love highlighting listeners’ stories on the show and love highlighting authors! I hope you enjoy hearing from Vanessa!
