Sarah and Dimity finally found an ideal expert to talk about running safety: Susan Schorn, the author of Smile at Strangers, and Other Lessons in the Art of Living Fearlessly and a second-degree black belt who has been teaching karate and self-defense for almost 15 years. Bonus: Susan, a recreational runner and mom of two, has a sense of humor. Talking about self-defense from an empowerment perspective, Susan shares some small, habitual behaviors that are easy to put into practice. She also instructs runners to aim for the “soft spots” on an attacker’s body, catching, “hold of everything you can.” (Male listeners are sure to squirm at this point in the podcast.) Susan shares wisdom in projecting self-confidence while running, and recognizing the power you already have.
