    E24: Wife, Mother, Runner and Type 1 Warrior with Melissa Inmon

    Melissa began her running journey with a 5K, then took a hiatus. After having 2 children, she returned to running and has completed several races up to the marathon distance.  In this episode, we talk about her running journey and what it is like to be a runner with Type 1 Diabetes.  I hope you enjoy this light-hearted conversation and learn more about T1D along the way!

Enjoy getting to know her and get her pep talk- don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.

    E 22: "Don't Look Back!" with Ashley Shutts

    E 22: "Don't Look Back!" with Ashley Shutts

    I am excited to introduce Ashley Shutts to all the listeners out there this week. She is a mom, hiker, wife, barber, and ultrarunner here in the Louisville area.  In this episode, she describes to us how her love for the outdoors as a kid helped create the runner she is today.  Ashley describes falling ill with an autoimmune disease after having her first child.  Experiencing Guillain-Barre Syndrome greatly impacted the way Ashley approached life after going through therapy and re-learning how to walk.  She started chasing distances and times after her first 5K and progressed to finishing her first 100-mile race at The Falls 100 in 2019.  Ashley states her gratitude to the running community is overwhelming and her best piece of advice is that while bad things can happen to us in life, "don't look back", just keep moving forward and persevere.

    Mini Episode 2: Are you Team Road or Team Trail?

    Mini Episode 2: Are you Team Road or Team Trail?

    Can you guess if Bluegrass BAMR is Team Road or Team Trail?   She has been thinking a lot about her running journey...not only the past but what the future will look like, including race goals for next year. In talking with other people about their 2020 goals, she notices that many runners tend to identify as road runners or trail runners. Sometimes the conversation turns to if/why a person can love one over the other; can they love both the same etc....so, Stephanie came up with a list of pros/cons for both trail and road running as she explores her own running "identity". 
    You will also hear why other listeners might prefer one over the other (thanks to everyone who called in to share their thoughts)!  At the end of the episode, you'll find out is the Bluegrass BAMR prefers roads or trails.  Enjoy this fun bonus episode and don't forget to leave her a message on whether you love road or trail running more!
