Overcoming a Mental Obstacle: How One Woman Found the Motivation to Run in the Jerusalem Marathon19 February 2023
Growing up in an ultra-Orthodox family, Moria Gilbert never put an emphasis on exercise. Having battled with weight issues throughout her life -- and after watching the Jerusalem Marathon wistfully from her window -- she vowed that one day she would be a participant in the event. In-studio with VOI's Molly Livingstone, she shares her story of motivation, challenges and friends she acquired along the way to running in one of the world's most unique marathons, in the heart of the Holy City. Fitness trainer Rachel Koenigson adds to the discussion by offering mental tips on how to take that first step out of the door and into the race. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barka calls in to encourage parents to put on their running shoes and join him in the race as well.
