#337: Self-Defense Advice from 2x Assault Survivor Kelly Herron

Fresh off running her 9th NYC Marathon, Tish Hamilton co-hosts with Sarah. Tish talks about why it was a great race to spectate, but rough for participants. NYC was Tish’s 54th marathon—find out what #55 is going to be. (#GreenWithEnvy—or should we say #VertWithEnvy?) The duo welcomes Kelly Herron, a two-time survivor of assaults while running and founder of the platform Not Today MF. (Good spoiler alert: She thwarts both attackers.) Kelly recounts the assault—and how she employed recently learned self-defense tactics to escape. She talks about empowerment and personal safety, and how her own mother runner helped her move behind the attack. Kelly shares defensive moves and recommends her favorite personal safety devices (including AfterShokz headphones, which are “like having four ears!”). Find out what constitutes 90% of self-defense. We realize some listeners will tune out when talk turns to the assaults: The guest joins the show at 20:11.

  1. Wow, Kelly, you are tough! And such as inspiration! Thank you for the literally blow-by-blow description of the first attack. I think the most important part of your response is that you did not give up. Bravo! (And how can I get the T-shirt?)
