Our chat was really an enjoyable one for me, which I think you’ll be able to figure out by listening to our conversation.

We were all over the map in terms of what we talked about metaphors, the mental side of training, playing ice hockey, being total nerds, becoming runners, dropping out of school after 1st grade, and so much more!

Here are some of the highlights from todays conversation:

  • A unique reason for the marathon being her favorite distance to race
  • Preferring training for a marathon over the actual race
  • Getting into running by training with a group of women 20 years older than her
  • The struggle with calling herself a runner
  • The importance, and the fun, of having a goal to run towards
  • Writing her first book, The Lola Papers
  • The inspirational story of Teri Griege, and how that became a book
  • Upcoming writing projects
  • Bucket list races
  • A birthday running tradition
