This is the episode for anyone who is curious how to become a “greener” runner: Hosts Sarah and Molly have an enlightening conversation with Keri Straughn, co-founder of the Low Impact Alliance and co-owner of Palmetto Running Company. This mother runner details:

-how making small changes adds up to big differences;
-what “plogging,” “greenwashing,” and “circularity” mean;
-the environmental footprint of races;
-the future of good-for-the-planet shoe manufacturing; and,

-how to (easily) shop more responsibly for running gear.

Molly details her return to running before the guest joins around 6:00. Listen all the way to the end to learn what book-related milestone Coach Liz reached—and her top three books in 2023—in Miles of Books.
