Supermodel, Super Mother Runner

Sarah and Christy at the end if their six-mile run last week along the West Side Highway Bike Path, with the Freedom Tower in the background.

Sarah and Dimity chat with supermodel Christy Turlington Burns, who, at 5’ 10”, is the pipsqueak of the trio. The founder of the non-profit Every Mother Counts, Christy has switched from strutting the catwalk to running to raise awareness for global maternal health. Christy talks about the mission and roots of her organization as well as training for her second consecutive ING New York City Marathon. This mother of two also shares the painful significance of the distances 26.2 miles and 5K to pregnant women in developing nations. And as proof Christy was Skyping from the Big Apple, listen for a few NYC taxis honking during the show.

  1. I love your podcasts. I used to use them to motivate me during my long runs. For example, saving the new episode for any mile after 10 of a 20 mile run. But now the running is so great I don’t need motivation. I save your podcasts for folding laundry or doing dishes!
