Running Life: A Fitness Protection Production

Coach MK (Fleming) is the founder of Fitness Protection, LLC. She is a run coach not life coach, but we're never really talking about the running! She isn't afraid to call out, and push back against, Diet Culture and its impact on her runners. She is committed to ensuring that no runner discounts their own badassery while combatting fatphobia and sizeism in the fitness industry.

This podcast is geared towards every runner who won’t lose their home or health insurance if they show up to the corral with a hangover (though we do not advise it!). Whether you are a marathoner or a hobbyjogger, you will find something to enjoy when the coaches start talking as we run through this marathon of life, together.

Last year, Susan DiLeo hit Coach MK with an idea: she wanted to run 50 miles before midnight on her 50th birthday. The catch? She wanted to run them on a 1-mile paved loop around the parking lot at the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. 

Read the shownotes to Coach MK's fiery intro here!

In this episode, Susan will tell you how she sold Coach MK and no less than 15 other women on this idea, plus you’ll hear from two other badasses who fell under Susan’s spell: Melissa Yacuzzo and Tamara Paton. 

These women are modest, but their accomplishments are anything but. We hope you enjoy this tale of a 24-hour race that is WAY cooler than you would think: Three Days at the Fair.
