Vanessa Runs Comes Back a Year Later for Another Chat

Today I’m reconnecting with Vanessa Runs.

Vanessa joined me on the show for the first time back in Episode 11 (and last week as a Best Of episode), and a lot has happened in her life since the last time we talked.

In the past year, Vanessa has gotten married, published her second book, and helped crew a couple of runners on a trans-continental run.

So needless to say, we had plenty of things to talk about today. After catching up on a lot of the running and traveling highlights, we really dove in to her second book, Daughters of Distance.

Here are some of the highlights from our chat.

  • A spur of the moment Vegas wedding
  • A two-state crew job turned into an entire trans-con
  • Getting to site-see on the East Coast, and a desire to come back and explore it at some point
  • The motivation for writing Daughters of Distance
  • Some of the surprising things she learned while writing and researching the book
  • The controversy (that I was unaware of) surrounding the term “Chicked”
  • Sharing some stories from the book.
  • Why men should take the time to read Daughters of Distance
  • Future plans, including the possibility of book number 3

If you want to pick up a copy of Vanessa’s book Daughters of Distance, click the link to order it from Amazon (available on Kindle and in paperback). And while you’re at it, check out her first book, The Summit Seeker.
