In this episode, we talked about:

  • Being born into a family of runners and how she moved into coaching women.
  • The huge fitness myth that you have to go out and kill yourself or do something you dislike to get in shape.
  • Alexa’s favorite workout and how it can be fun.
  • What an ultramarathon is.
  • How Karen runs as her me time and switches off training cycles with her husband.
  • Aubrey’s funny story about her daughter running a mile. Do it for Whiskey!
  • Tips for adding movement in throughout your day.
  • How unique our children dress sometimes and maintaining that self-confidence.


How Karen keeps her life together:

  • If she isn’t running, Karen loves to sew. She first started when her super thin son couldn’t find clothes that fit and even made all of their clothes for a few years (even their underwear!)
