RB102: Overcome Life’s Challenges Through Health and Fitness With Shelley Leone

Shelley Leone

In this episode of the RunBuzz podcast, I sit down with Shelley Leone. Like many of us, Shelley has had to overcome some personal setbacks and struggles in her life. In this episode we look at Shelley’s fitness journey and how Shelley used running, fitness and nutrition as tools to help her get her life back under control and live the life she was meant to live. Now she is encouraging others to do the same. Join me as Shelley shares tons of great advice with the RunBuzz running community.

All this and more coming up on today’s show.

Show Notes:

I recently sat down with Shelley Leone to discuss her health and fitness journey and have her share her story with the RunBuzz running community.  Since Shelley lives in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, we had the opportunity to meet in person and record live on the spot. I hope that you find her story inspiring. I know I did.

I first heard of Shelley from Lisa Bevan. Lisa is our community manager in our private Facebook group. After connecting with Shelley on Instagram, we were able to catch up at my office and start the interview. Since she started running several years ago, Shelley has lost over 70lbs, overcome homelessness and job loss, and has been focused on recovery from addictive behaviors.  This episode is powerful. Shelley shares how she overcame her struggles with persistence, consistency, support of friends, and by trying to be the best she can be so she can live the life she wants to live.

Shelley has been featured on a number of media outlets.  Some of these include, NBC’s Today with Megyn Kelly, Shape Magazine, People Magazine, ABC News Columbus, Women’s Running Magazine, and more.
