Episode 19: All Runners are Real Runners (Kelsey Cansler) IMG_8706

Today I’m talking all about what it means to be a real runner!  This past week, the photo in this post was featured on the Runner’s World Instagram page.  After reading some of the comments on that post, I realized that there is a struggle going on in the running community based on what makes someone a “real runner” and what those words mean.  I discuss the implications of plus sized runners getting lots of media attention, the negative results of saying “I’m not a real runner” or “I’m too slow”, and how powerful words can be.  We are all in this together and putting ourselves into little boxes with labels does not help anyone! Hopefully this episode can shed some light on what it means to be a runner and how we can all come together to empower the entire running community.
