“Doing things in a really authentic and true way is important to me. I’d say not allowing other people’s definition of success or industry definitions of success to define my life experience and sport experience. Hopefully that I would like that people say that I helped give them permission to do the same thing. To value their own definition of success above the external definition of success.”
In this episode, Lauren Fleshman, professional runner for Oiselle, writer, cofounder of Picky Bars, mother, and coach of Little Wing, discusses how to harness the superpower of authenticity. Lauren reflects on her relationship with writing, from the creative process to overcoming the fear of sharing poignant work. She explores how she navigates the principles of sport psychology with the reality of being a multi-dimensional human being. Lauren recounts the story of how she met Jesse Thomas, her husband, professional triathlete, and cofounder of Picky Bars. She shares lessons she has learned from her Oiselle run-family. Lauren explains her recent achilles area surgery and her plan to return to running. She reflects on the role of family in her life, from balancing motherhood with running to the impact of her father’s recent death. Lastly, Lauren explores her superpower of authenticity and how it inspires her dreams for her life and the upcoming year.
