S2 E02 - In this episode of Outspoken shares the story of Grace Fisher, 100 mile trail running champion, mother, and Operations Research Analyst for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security.
Grace rediscovered running while testing equipment for the Army, blowing off steam with late night runs around the base. Running served as a sort of saving grace in her life, helping her heal from addiction and divorce. Yet even more so, Grace serves as a saving grace for sport itself. When asked about her own running, Grace lauds the grit and kindness of her competitors. And as the first openly transgender ultrarunner to podium at major races, she’s inadvertently helping to build a more inclusive and supportive running world (and beyond).
