Sarah and co-host Maggie Palmer have a heart-to-heart with Kim Stemple, a mother runner with an abundance of positivity despite facing down a terminal trio of illnesses. A marathon runner and triathlete, Kim is founder of We Finish Together, a grassroots group passing along medals to people in challenging situations. Kim shares how she’s rewritten the rules about being sick, including running two marathons and a 50K (!!) post-diagnoses. A veteran of two Marine Corps Marathons, Kim gives advice for running what she lovingly calls “more of an event than a race.” Laugh as Kim tells a tale involving cheetah pajamas and Bart Yasso in a golf cart! The inspiration behind Grit + Grace Enduro socks by Balega, Kim talks about the importance of passing on kindness, including in the starting corral of a race. Moments before beginning to record the show, Kim shared with the hosts that she is headed into hospice. Let’s make a spark by showing some extra kindness this month.

In the introduction, Sarah and Maggie touch on a bevy of topics, including Sarah’s mom’s recent move, musical instruments, PBS, and more. The guest joins the show at 17:00.
