Great Read: Professional Runner Lauren Fleshman Talks Body Image

Although we haven’t posted “Great Reads” like this on in the past, it’s definitely something we will be doing more of in the future. Here goes…

Oregon’s Lauren Fleshman has an extensive resume that includes a decorated career in the sport of professional running and motherhood (as of 2013). She co-owns and helps operate Picky Bars based in Bend, OR., works closely with Seattle-based Oiselle (a very awesome, running-inspired clothing line for women) and she dabbles in writing.  She’s penned articles for RaceCenter Northwest Magazine from time to time and also writes for Runner’s World.

In the midst of her busy and chaotic life, she also has an entertaining blog.  We came across this post and thought we’d share –  This piece really grabbed our attention and we appreciate Lauren’s candid approach to this topic of body image and how skewed our perceptions have become in recent years thanks.

Thanks @laurenfleshman!
