About this episode

This episode is with runner, writer, and sobriety advocate Celeste Yvonne. A mom of 2, Celeste is not afraid to share how her struggles as a new mom became the catalyst for redefining her relationship with alcohol, running, and her body. Celeste recently published her first book, “It’s Not About the Wine”, and we dive into the story behind it, how running factors in, and much more.

In this episode we talk about:

  • starting running as a struggling new mom
  • Celeste’s journey with running and sobriety
  • moving with joy and gratitude
  • body trust and intuition in life and running
  • the why behind running: from external reasons and running with a point to prove, inner joy and body respect
