Spending time outdoors can help us heal, but what if we could use it to help others heal, too?
Elizabeth Carr has used the outdoors to help her heal from her own trauma. She also works with Back on My Feet, an organization that uses running to help the homeless, well, get back on their feet. Elizabeth tells us all about her personal journey to running and how it clears her head.
We also hear about her claim to fame: she’s in the Guinness Book of World Records...but not for running.
