Michelle Quirk, MD is a pediatrician and pediatric hospitalist in the Philadelphia area. She is also a certified run coach and started Mindful Marathon (mindful-marathon.com) to help busy professionals develop well-being through running and fitness. Importantly, Michelle was not always a runner, but over the years learned how to engage with her own personal wellness through running and fitness. That engagement led to the Mindful Marathon passion project – by which trains doctors and other busy professionals how to run and coaches them through short- and long-distance challenges. We talk about Michelle’s journey into running, how a pledge to patients to get healthier inspired her to be healthier and how running became a great stress outlet for her. WE take many analogies from the running world and bring them into medicine and surgery including training, nutrition, and recovery. I love talking to Michelle, I hope you enjoy too!
