Talented on water AND land: @SummerSanders_ dispenses #running wisdom + training tips on our podcast

Dimity and Sarah are joined by Summer Sanders , winner of four Olympic medals in swimming who has been a runner for two decades. A mom of two, Summer shares how she shifted from being a serious athlete to a social one (even though Dim and Sarah think her 3-hours-and-change marathons are plenty serious!).
