Debra Eckerling, author of Your Goal Guide, has posted her most recent #GoalChat replay. This week she spoke with Eddie Louise and Nita Sweeney, check it out- video included.
This week’s #GoalChatLive was an exercise in #Endurance. While my guest Eddie Louise was having trouble getting into Streamyard, I called on my Mango pal Nita Sweeney to join me last minute. The result: a wonderful 3-way conversation on endurance, NaNoWriMo, and more.On Sunday night’s #GoalChat, as well as #GoalChatLive, we relayed how we had been enduring in “safe at home” mode. We also shared tips for thriving in close quarters and dove into the bevvy of upcoming November challenges. November is National Novel Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), National Non-Fiction Writing Month (#NaNonFiWriMo, created by Nina Amir), National Podcast Post Month (#NaPodPoMo created by Jennifer Navarrete), and National Blog Posting Month (#NaBloPoMo).
We highlighted NaNoWriMo for a good portion of the #GoalChatLive. Nita and Eddie both have remarkable National Novel Writing Month success stories. The whole conversation was full of fun, camaraderie, and encouragement to take action. These, by the way, are all good reasons to participate in one of those November monthly challenges.

Depression Hates a Moving Target
How Running With My Dog Brought Me Back From the Brink (Running Depression and Anxiety Therapy, Bipolar)
It’s never too late to chase your dreams. Before she discovered running, Nita Sweeney was 49-years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time. Using exercise, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.
