#119: (Running) Streaker Paula Harkin Bares All

Dimity and Sarah reconnect with Paula Harkin, the Portland mom of two, “proficient” runner, and coach who trained SBS for the 2007 marathon that kicked off Run Like a Mother. Main topic of conversation: Paula surpassing her 2000th day of of running at least a mile a day. The mother runners delve into the origins of Paula’s noteworthy running streak, the speedbumps along the way, and if it shows any signs of ending. Much to the TMI delight of Sarah, Paula shares the gory details of a fibroid-fueled episode that nearly sidelined her.
