On February 17th, 2020, my friend Kate Fletcher ran her 5th Lions Pride Run to raise money for scholarships for underprivileged students in Louisa, Virginia. This years run was a 50 mile run from Louisa to the Virginia capital building in Richmond.
Some things we talk about in this discussion:
What it means to be a part of a tight knit community like Louisa.
Why Kate chose, unlike the previous 4 years, to run outside of Louisa this year.
Running as a creative outlet, as a way to construct something bigger in life.
Running as a way to get into a flow state.
Running as a way to widen and broaden the way we look at the world.
There is value in getting uncomfortable. Struggle is not something that is in the way - it is the way.
How a teacher came to better understand her students through the sport of running.
