Hopefully by sharing my story you’ll get to know me a little bit more and find out that athletes are a bit more vulnerable than you’d expect. And also, hopefully, commiserate with any sort of issues you may be having and start a dialogue here.
As someone who has struggled with disordered eating in the past, and has encouraged other men to share their stories, I commend ultrarunner Chris Mocko for opening up about his battle with binge eating on a recent episode of The Mocko Show. I know firsthand how challenging it can be to share something like this with a wide audience but I’ve also seen how impactful it can be on others who are struggling in silence. Respect, Mocko.
