ABOUT THIS PODCAST:
Kara is a fourth-generation public school teacher from California, a mother to two children, and also maintains a small farm with horses, dogs, and a tortoise named Rachel. We talk with Kara about how Rachel the tortoise is her spirit animal and how she struggled with an unhealthy relationship with running, exercise, and food while growing up. She strives to keep a well balanced and positive outlook on exercise and food as she strives to set an example for her children and others. Kara loves the Born to Run ultramarathons and prides herself in running slow and steady.
Kara shares how she started the 100 Mile Club in 1992 and how her instinct led to developing a program that now reaches over 1.2 million children a year. With the 100 Mile Club, Kara is passionate about using running or other activities to inspire kids, as well as adults, to set a goal, work toward it a little each day, and help others along the way.
