#127: First AMR Reading/Running Book Club with Rachel Toor

Rachel with her dog, Helen: The duo ran a half-marathon earlier this year, and Helen was the 4th-place dog out of 42!

Sarah and Dimity welcome author/ultramarathoner/professor Rachel Toor to talk about her young adult novel, On the Road to Find Out. A prolific runner—she’s run more than 50 marathons and 12+ ultras—Rachel explains why she has her teen protagonist be a burgeoning runner making her way through the college-admission gauntlet. Like an enjoyable, rambling running route, the mother runners’ conversation with Rachel weaves unexpectedly, delving into topics like the sport of ride and tie and why rats make surprisingly fantastic pets. Find out, “the most profound thing” Rachel has ever done as a runner, and how she helped a mother runner named Liz reach her sub-4:00 goal in the NYC Marathon.

Thanks to a new Google Voice number (470-BADASS1), mother runners Beth and Becky get to ask their [recorded] questions on the air.

  1. Checked out “On the Road To Find Out” from the library last weekend and finished it last night..I’m psyched about the book club podcasts because they’re combining two things I love most. I’m saving the episode for tomorrow’s run 🙂
