Marlen’s manuscript entitled “Running, being and Beijing? An existential, autoethnographic exploration of a runner identity” and co-authored by lead researcher Noora Ronkainen and Professor Tatiana Riba of Aarhus University, Denmark, has been accepted for publication at Qualitative Research in Psychology, a Taylor and Francis peer-reviewed journal.
