Kristen Garzone is a 7 time marathoner on a hunt to break 4 hours this spring all while raising money for Every Mother Counts in honor of her friend Kristin who lost her life to post partum depression. She is a wife, the mom of one, works in insurance and has a deep love for her dog Troy. Kristen has a great platform on instagram where she opens up about post partum depression and anxiety and advocates for those going through it.
Kristen’s first love was soccer- she played in college but now spends a lot of her time running rather than playing soccer. It seems to be a common theme – soccer players turned distance runners. She is fun, relatable and totally honest about mental health and all the factors that play into getting to a healthy, strong place. She recently wrote an article on post partum depression for Oiselle that spread pretty quick and I hope you’ll read it!
Enjoy my conversation with Kristen!
