For her first season hosting Working, Slate’s own Shannon Palus is delving into the world of running, from professional athletes to coaches to people who do all manner of things to help people run.
This week, Shannon talks to Mirna Valerio, professional ultrarunner, speaker, and author of the bookA Beautiful Work in Progress. Mirna started her journey toward becoming a professional athlete with her blog “Fat Girl Running,” documenting her progress from casual runner to ultramarathoner.
Mirna talks about how she champions inclusivity in the sport through speaking engagements, partnerships with brands like REI and Skirt Sports, and her Slow As F*ck Trail Running Retreats.
