Week 4 / 19 of Marathon Training

Update posted 1 year ago

On Episode 7 - Week Four, Coach Morgon and I talk about the fourth week of the 19 week training plan, the need to be flexible in both training and on race day to respond to unexpected circumstances, and about diversity and inclusivity in running and endurance sports 

Army Veteran and Mental Health Counselor Duane France is training for his first marathon, and you can listen to his training journey and coaching experience with fellow veteran Morgon Latimore as they prepare for the 2023 Denver Colfax Marathon on the Mere Mortal Marathon Podcast 

As vocal advocates of mental health, wellness, and suicide prevention, Duane and Coach Morgon are pleased to partner with the Second Wind Fund as the M3 Podcast charity partner to provide opportunities for youth in Colorado to access much-needed clinical services 

About The Second Wind Fund

The mission of the Second Wind Fund is to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing financial and social barriers to treatment. 

Second Wind Fund believes that every child and youth at risk of suicide should have access to the mental health treatment they need. They match children and youth at risk for suicide with licensed therapists in their communities. If a financial or social barrier to treatment is present, the Second Wind Fund pays for up to 12 sessions of therapy from one of their specialized network providers. Their unique program helps referred youth discover hope and healing in their lives.

The youth suicide rate throughout Colorado is alarmingly high. Over the last 19 years, Second Wind Fund has expanded to provide life-saving services to over 7,000 children and teens in communities throughout Colorado.
