Sarah goes it solo chatting with entrepreneur/writer/former pro runner Lauren Fleshman and her husband/pro triathlete/Picky Bars CEO Jesse Thomas—in front of an audience in beautiful Bend, Oregon. The married couple opens up about:

-how years (and years!) of being competitive athletes shaped them as parents and partners;

-how to be the best cheerleader for each other;

-how to hone your own writerly voice (and the parallels between running + writing);

-the truly challenging endurance “sport” of traveling with children;

-why their on-again, off-again pre-marriage relationship serves them well today.

And Lauren pulls back the curtain on her new writing routine—and the new book she’s working on!
