196: Running with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Sid Efromovich (11_16_2017)

Sid Efromovich, who has a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP), discusses his Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and his unbelievable journey in becoming a runner.

We discussed the following:

  • His extreme luck in being diagnosed with CRPS when he did
  • His mindset during this journey of living with CRPS
  • Why he started running
  • A different way to look at increasing your mileage
  • Why to wear a race shirt for a race that you didn’t run
  • His love of audiobooks
  • Running in Madrid, Venice, Florence, and Tel Aviv
  • How self-acceptance leads to self-compassion and then to self-care—because self-care is health care

In this episode, Sid and I talk a lot about mindset and positive psychology—both subjects of great interest to us. If you’re looking to take a holistic view of your life, to examine how perhaps running is just one component of it, and to explore the possibility of coaching, please reach out to me. Right now I have a few spots left in my schedule. The coaching that I do is grounded in evidenced-based, scientifically proven tools and strategies to help people focus on making some shifts in their lives.
