Episode 32: A Healthy Running Life

Andrea Barber of Netflix’s Fuller House talks about how her transformation into a runner caught her by surprise given sports weren’t really her thing growing up. Despite that, she caught the running bug and has completed dozens of half marathons and several marathons in just a few years. (2:14)

We all deal with running injuries, so we followed one runner who takes part in an innovative program to determine the cause, and hopefully the treatment, of his nagging plantar fasciiitis. Plus, the tips you can use to stay strong and healthy. (29:37)

In the Kick, we recap several amazing racing stories, including how a prisoner ran his own Boston Marathon while on a treadmill, a 13-year-old who almost took down the top high-school runners, and an inspiring 96-year-old who isn’t satisfied with breaking records. (44:58)
