This Morning Walk podcast invites you to experience the transformative power of a simple walk, now part of Blind Nil Audio from Executive Producers Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Join hosts Alex Elle and Libby DeLana as they share the lessons they’ve learned on their walking paths, both individually and together.

Alex - A New York Times BestSelling Author and writing coach living in DC with her husband and daughters - and Libby - a Creative Director based on both coasts with grown children - started This Morning Walk Podcast to reflect on the ways a daily walk keeps them grounded in their day-to-day lives. As Alex likes to say - “It’s deeper than walking. It’s about slowing down, looking up, and finding clarity in your daily life.” 

It’s a practice. A mindset. A way forward. And ultimately, it’s a new path.

    Destigmatizing Menstruation with August Co-Founder Nadya Okamoto

    Libby welcomes Nadya Okamoto, the co-Founder of August, a lifestyle brand working to reimagine periods to be powerful. This episode is an invitation to reflect on the shame that we as a society have put on menstruation and how we think and talk about it. Through August, Nadya encourages open conversations about periods and the importance of inclusivity and diversity in the menstrual health movement. 
    Libby and Nadya first went for a walk together when Nadya attended Harvard, where they discussed her nascent project that would eventually become August. Nadya and Libby discuss the prevalence of “period poverty” and how that particularly impacts young people all over the country who need better access to menstrual products.

    Walking, Creativity, and Motherhood with Artist and Author Katrina Rodabaugh

    Walking, Creativity, and Motherhood with Artist and Author Katrina Rodabaugh

    Libby welcomes author and artist Katrina Rodabaugh to discuss the intersection of walking, creativity, and motherhood. Katrina’s work is focused on the overlap of sustainability, craft, and design, which mostly means that she mends things: Jeans, sweaters, our old farmhouse, and more. After taking one of her classes on mending, Libby met Katrina and discovered that she, too, was a WalkStar. Katrina shares her journey of sustainability and craft with Libby, and they both reflect on the changing dynamics of parenting as their children grow older and the opportunities it brings to their work.

This Morning Walk

How wonderful to have Libby&Alex “join” me on my morning walk. Every episode feels like I am having a conversation with thoughtful friends. Keep walking and talking!

countrykelly ,

Like a hug from a good friend!

My sincerest gratitude for these two ladies and the message they are sharing. Life is in a fact a journey we are walking and knowing we walk this together through similar life trials and tribulations one step at a time with a cup of chai as reward is in fact the “why” of it all. 🤗
