Happy Sunday everyone and of course Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads. Next up on my Women on the Move is Crystal Clark from Heartland Running. I came across Crystal on Instagram, of course, and was curious about her and the running podcast she helps host. Crystal’s first run was a half marathon and as they say the running bug definitely has bitten her. According to her Instagram page she has run 15 x 26.2, 1 x 100k, 3 x 50k, 2 x 50 miles and is currently training for 100 miles November in 2017.
Crystal is one of three hosts on The Heartland Running Podcast. From the site:
Crystal did not grow up athletic and almost failed gym. So everyone was pretty surprised when she signed up for her first race – a half marathon. She fumbled her way to the finish line (despite not evening know how far it was) and was hooked. Since then she has run 20 marathons/ultras including the Boston Marathon. Crystal’s current goal is to chase down a 100 mile finish.
Crystal lives in Ohio with her husband, son, and their pet cat Geddy Lee.
You can follow her adventures on Instagram @seecrystalrun.
I really like the site because it focuses on the running life in the Ozarks (I lived in Illinois for eight years) and beyond. Over the last few months I have enjoyed listing to podcasts in the car and wouldn’t mind doing it myself one day. Maybe interviewing women on the move! They have some good podcasts consisting of inspirational and informative stories/information about running and other sports as well as gear reviews and basic advice. Really cool and they are fun to listen too as well. Enjoy (link at the top). Happy Miles to You!!
