#225: From Fat to Finish Line

Fat to finish 500x300

If you're having trouble getting our podcast to download automatically in your iTunes feed or on your iPhone Podcast app, delete the AMR feed, then re-subscribe to the show. We apologize for the hassle, and we appreciate tech-savvy mother runners for clueing us in to an easy fix to the issue! 

Sarah and Dimity have a virtual sit-down with Jennifer Roe and Katie Foster, two of the stars of the new documentary “From Fat to Finish Line,” which chronicles a team of 12 runners who lost a combined weight of 1,200+ pounds as they run a Ragnar Relay in Key West. Producer Jennifer leads off the conversation, telling how her running and weight-loss journey started with a vow to run “a 5-mile marathon” and why this slightly misguided intention was her $100 “action step.” Jen, a mom of a special-needs son, shares how running one mile nonstop for the first time shattered all her self-constrained limits about herself—and how now she’s training for her second New York City Marathon. Find out what she “1000% recommends” to change your mindset toward a race. (Apologies in advance: Jen has several coughing jags during the show; she was getting over a cold.) Next up is Katie “Runs for Cookies” Foster, who walks through how a bike riding experience morphed her into a runner. Katie shares details of the lower-body lift she had to remove excess skin after she shed 125 pounds in 16 months, and how she still has to work on her self-image shift six years after dropping the weight. Fresh off a 10K PR, Katie gives advice on getting over the intimidation factor of taking part in a race.

  1. I’ve been wondering why it seemed like you’ve taken a hiatus since episode 222. I see your intro here about deleting and resubscribing to the podcast. I just tried that, and it still won’t show me any newer episodes. Not only won’t it download them, but if I click on “feed,” they don’t even show up in the feed. Any newer suggestions? I’ve been missing my AMR podcasts!
