What you'll hear in this conversation:
Part of our human condition is doubts. And maybe that's why we run, because we love wrestling with doubt.
Life isn't about training to be comfortable, it's about mastering our approach to life when it gets uncomfortable.
Is it possible that in a culture that is more comfortable than ever, runners are a group of people seeking discomfort, and possibly because they want the chance to wrestle with failure to see how they'll respond.
Kate Fletcher is not a runner drawn to "racing." She talks about why it's difficult for her to find a reason to race, but relatively easy to find a reason to run.
Whether we are running or tackling a career or a relationship, understanding "why" we do it is always the key fulfillment.
Are runners salespeople? What are we trying to sell ourselves and others through our running?
A conversation about the book Born to Run - and this idea that the secret to running is found in our capacity for loving one another. It's found in compassion.
Maybe running gives us the opportunity to have meaningful conversations with ourselves and others we might not normally have otherwise.
