In the latest episode of the 87% podcast we spoke to mental health campaigner and author, Hope Virgo. Hope suffered with anorexia for over 4 years, which then led to her being admitted to a mental health hospital in 2007, where she lived for a year. Hope talks to us about her recovery and her new relationship with food, as well as her love for running.


Running gives me headspace

- Hope Virgo

Hope says she originally became obsessed with running and saw it as a form of punishment, but after a long time she began to include running into her wellbeing routine.

Thank you for your honesty Hope - as Hope said in the podcast, we need to keep the conversation going, even if it's a tough conversation to have…
