Sarah and Dimity tap into the media zeitgeist of plus-size runners for a thought-provoking, 72-minute (!!) running podcast. First, they are joined by Jessie Sebor, editor in chief of Women’s Running, to talk about the magazine featuring a “curvy” runner on the cover and the reactions the image generated. Find out if the magazine plans to continue featuring a diverse cross-section of runners. Next up, the mother runners welcome Mirna Valerio, a distance runner who weighs about 240 pounds and is the subject of in an in-depth profile in August issue of Runner’s World magazine. Interspersed with jubilant laughter, this mother runner shares the story how she morphed from a high schooler running laps for field hockey to a woman poised to take on her first 100K event. Mirna explains how she loves “breaking the mold” and disrupting perceptions of the “typical” runner. Find out what she sometimes tells herself in the mirror before a run to get out the door--you might never look at yourself the same way again.
