In this bonus episode, Sarah and Dimity chat with Rachel Pieh Jones, an expat, writer, and mother of three who lives—and runs—in Djibouti, Djibouti (pssst, it's in Africa). Rachel, our April Mother Runner of the Month, talks them through basics like the heat (and sweating through the sole of her shoes!); more complicated matters like harassment she’s endured while running; and Girls Run 2, a club she started in 2008 for local girls to experience, among other things, the benefits of running. Follow Rachel on Instagram + on her blog, Djibouti Jones. Her newest book about Somalia’s Mother Theresa, Stronger than Death: How Annalena Tonelli Defied Terror and Tuberculosis in the Horn of Africa, will be out in October 2019.
