    Connections and Community In the Run with Iman Wilkerson

    Connections and Community In the Run with Iman Wilkerson

    In this episode, co-founder of Aire Libre, Mauricio Díaz ( @maudac ) engages in a touching and heartfelt talk with passionate multi-marathon runner, coach, and devoted running community builder: Iman Wilkerson ( @on.iman.opia ), a @cieleathletics FRND with whom we had the honor of sharing the trails during our last Oaxaca Day of the Dead experience last November.

    During this conversation, we explore Iman's transformative journey from her first 5k in 2008 to becoming an experienced marathoner, participating in iconic races like New York and Boston. Beyond the miles, Iman emphasizes the significance of connections formed through running, influenced by her experience in the heart of New York City. Having relocated to sunny San Diego, she continues her running journey, weaving a business around her passion for the sport. We explore the richness of Iman's experiences, unveiling the profound impact of running communities as bridges connecting individuals to city pulses, natural serenity, and, most crucially, each other. Iman emerges as a fervent advocate for the inclusivity defining the best running communities, uniting diverse souls under the shared rhythm of pounding feet and aspirations

    "There are more communities that are feeling called to step up and to lead, or there are people who are feeling called to step up to lead and not feeling like they have to rest on what already existed. I think that what also comes from that is we don’t have to race to run. For these past few years up until maybe this year, or even parts of last year, you know, we didn’t have races, or races were paused for a little bit, so people were just running for community and just running to run together."
    – Iman Wilkerson

    Join us as we dive into the transformative power of running beyond the miles, where each step contributes to a larger connection resonating with the heartbeat of cities, the whispers of nature, and the shared cadence of human connection.
