I know this all too well. Back in October at Charm City CX, I got a chance to meet Gabby Durrin (: @gabby_durrin), who I’ve been a fan of for a while, and we briefly discussed her reasons for retirement. At first, it was jarring to hear the word “depression”. To society in general, but especially to an elite athlete, it’s a taboo subject that as she says in this video, “it can be perceived as a weakness”. But, as someone who also suffers from depression and anxiety, it was refreshing to hear her own it, rather than suppress it like we feel we’re obligated to do.
