The Lions Pride Run - An Interview With Kate Fletcher

April 15, 2020

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.
