Athlete On Fire

Our guest is a writer and runner.  Amongst other things she shares her process and how she was able to write her very powerful memoir, "So Far." She has great insights to the running world as long time contributor to "Runner's World". She used running as medication and therapy as well as her natural love of the act.  Learn about why running and being active in general was important coming from such a difficult situation at home.  We touch on some new topics to Athlete On Fire including mental health and how our guest has dealt with her own.  She happens to also be married to former Boston Marathon champion Amby Burfoot and has some fun stories of how her life of running with him has taken her on some great adventures.  We talk about the parallels between writing and running and there is no doubt everyone will learn something from this episode!
