I have been approached by Stuart Holliday, a PHd psychology researcher at the University of Central Lancaster, who is carrying out a long-term research project on mental health and well being for both runners and non-runners.
Attached are some details about the project, which looks very interesting, particularly for members who may have experienced any issues surrounding their own weight management/running performance etc.
The link below takes you to an anonymous survey which takes 10-15 minutes to complete, will help the project and will also increase awareness and understanding about this issue.
Having bordered on an eating disorder myself when running a very high running mileage in the 1990’s (5’ 7”, male, 8 ½ stone – it’s neither good for health nor a good look!!), I am sure there are many amongst us who can understand the problem but even if you’re not or have never been affected, your input will still be of equal value.
