Contributor’s Corner

This week, I want to switch the focus to highlight Nita Sweeney — a contributor to Runner’s Life — and her book Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running With My Dog Brought Me Back From the Brink.

As someone who has suffered from the debilitating effects of depression, I think it’s important to help reduce the stigma and let others know they are not alone. There are endless stories of how running helps those with depression and many studies that show the same.

Nita’s book is a memoir of how she overcome some of the challenges depression brings, is a #1 Best Seller in Bipolar Disorder, and was awarded a Maxwell Medallion by The Dog Writers Association of America for excellence in writing about the human/animal bond.

From the book description, “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.”

Per her bio and along with being an award-winning author, Nita has “completed three full marathons, twenty-seven half marathons (in eighteen states), and more than eighty shorter races.”

Her book is available on Amazon and other online retailers, and from her website.
