Summary

Hey Conscious Runners! I’ve got another fantastic episode for you. Today, Julia Chi Taylor and I sit down for our second episode of Soul Sessions with Lisah and Julia. Soul sessions with Lisah and Julia is a monthly series on The Conscious Runner Podcast where Julia and I share honestly and openly about our running, ourselves and our lives. I met Julia this year when I interviewed her for The Conscious Runner Podcast. Immediately, I knew we would remain connected.

From a very early age, Julia and I have been on parallel journeys –from representing our respective countries at world class international running events, to questioning why we run, to our pursuit of inner freedom and adventure and the names of our sites– The Conscious Runner and Running Conscious. Julia is also an author.  Her book Girlfriend for a Year charts the beginning of her relationship with her now husband Anadi. Julia’s journey of exploration through intimate relationship has been a lifelong quest to find true love.

Running to Learn tells the compelling story of an international running career in which each step led towards healing and awareness.  Through the many highs and lows of her life, Julia discovered the skills necessary to perform at top level throughout times of difficulty as well as triumph both on and off the track.  In this book, Julia shares her journey behind her unique and dynamic approach to life – the struggles behind the performances, her battle with an eating disorder and the challenges of her personal relationships.

I am so excited to bring these soul sessions to you. Although it is challenging for me to put myself out in such a personal way, I believe by hearing the stories of others, we affect our own. I hope you’ll find inspiration, motivation, understanding and connection as you listen in to the chat between Julia and I.
