FF: Running started as a fitness journey for you, but it has now transformed into something much bigger. What does running mean to you?
LS: There are so many things that I never even thought that I was capable of doing. When I think back to 2013 and taking up sports as a way of losing weight, I initially thought that would be the end all be all, that it would make me lose weight, make people like me, make me something else … make me this character I wanted to take on and embody.
But within months I realized how much fun I was having, I didn't obsess about the scale or what I was eating. I realized that running is freedom. And it’s a canvas in itself. It’s an act that many of us can do, but not many of us can take advantage of. And sometimes, we don’t realize the power that running has.
