Christy Burns, LPC Christy is an avid runner. Like, over 30 marathons and tons of ultras to her name. She works as a therapist and counselor professionally and brings a unique perspective to the mental side of becoming a better runner. “It is inevitable that the body will begin to break down and want to quit during long distance ultra events, the part that we have control over is how we train our mind to overcome those thoughts and feelings so that we can keep coming knowing that we’ll get there.”
