Podcast: Episode 229: Jasmin Paris: Prepare to be Inspired


There are not a lot of firsts left to be done in the world of trail running, but recently Jasmin Paris accomplished just that by becoming the first woman to finish the Barkley Marathons. Tune in to hear about her training for this infamously difficult race as well as what she did differently on this, her third time there.

She also shares her passion for protecting the places we run and the actionable steps she’s taken from co-founding the Green Runners to limiting her airborne travel to races. We also take a dive into the mental aspects of training and recovery as well as what it’s like to be an icon for women in sports.

Tune in and prepare to be inspired!
