The Flourishing Experiment

Kathrine Switzer, at the NYC Marathon, and Jeff Galloway each come on the show to discuss the gift of running. Kathrine discusses how running can help you be creative and to use running for your mind. Jeff Galloway congratulates me on the Philadelphia Marathon and tells me how to maintain my fitness. My friends Meaghan Nana-Sinkam and Becky Kotsifas ask me all about the race as an experience, rather than as a place to try to PR. Serena Marie, RD, shares when to eat full fat and when to choose non fat.
