In the intro, Sarah goes co-host-free in favor of a catch-up conversation with prolific Portland runner Paula Harkin, who just passed the 10-year mark of her running streak. (Yowza!) Paula details what constitutes a running streak—and how to make it official. (Who knew?!) She also confesses her daily run is “a challenge every single day.” Paula shares all sorts of Portland race news, including the scoop on the new Portland Marathon, plus her reclaiming two popular half-marathons. Loads of laughs are shared between these two mother runners (who ran the 2007 Nike Women’s Marathon together, when Paula coached SBS!).
Then, at the 22:22 mark, is the 2017 conversation with Sarah, Amanda Loudin, and Paula: The trio share ways to stay safe while running in the dark. They debate street v. sidewalk running. A long-time group-run leader, race director, and co-owner of Portland Running Company, Paula explains her street-smart practice of Defensive Running; she also talks about the importance of using all of one’s skills and senses to get through a run. Amanda tells of two of her running buddies, Disco Runner and Safety Ellie. Find out the gals’ favorite reflective gear, lights, and headphones.
