Run Local Pod Episode 24: Lauren Fleshman – U.S. Champion, Activist, Entrepreneur & Coach

This episode of the Run Local Pod is presented by Salomon Running.

Run Local had the pleasure of catching up with three-time U.S. 5k Champion, writer, entrepreneur and activist Lauren Fleshman. She is currently coaching a women’s pro group for Oiselle called Littlewing Athletics, pushing the pace on nutrition with Picky Bars and stirring the pot whenever she encounters inequality.

It was a big ol’ reunion as J.T. and Josh have not caught up with Lauren in years. They discuss her coaching philosophy, her blue-collar roots, and even entertain a surprise pro-athlete guest. Fleshman is also a Salomon sponsored athlete/coach.


Music by Jose Pena (29min. 10K guy at San Jose State!) & our Mariachi bands during the Mariachi Mile at the 408k ‘Race to the Row’ brought to you by Amazon.
