Find Meaning (On the Run) with Alison Mariella Désir


Oct 16, 2018

On this episode, I speak with Leandrew and Lizzy, co-leaders of Unnamed Run Crew in Boston.  Started as an an act of defiance, Unnamed was created to provide a space where everyone could feel comfortable.  Noticing that the running community in Boston was particularly white and competitive, Leandrew created Unnamed Run Crew 3 years ago and has not looked back.  Leandrew shares how a once shy Lizzy became a co-leader and she shares how her grandmother's sudden death prompted her own dramatic weight loss journey.  If you're in Boston tomorrow night, 10/16, be sure to join them and other running clubs and crews for a special event focused on the Midterm Elections.  Run The Vote will bring together folks from all over Boston for some miles and a last opportunity to register to vote before the 10/17 deadline.  For more information, head to https://runthevote.splashthat.com/.  ---  Follow Alison on Instagram at instagram.com/Alisonmdesir; Twitter: twitter.com/Alisonmdesir; Facebook: Facebook.com/Alisonmdesir.
