Wild Why

Making peace with passion

Wild Why is a podcast that explores the reasons people seek challenge, adventure and healing in outdoor adventures. Told in narrative story format, this podcast offers information and inspiration as athletes – from weekend warriors to professional competitors – share stories of personal transformations hard-won, sometimes unexpectedly, through outdoor challenges and races and events.

In this first episode, runner and outdoor enthusiast Shandi Kano talks about how her passion for road racing led her to a nervous breakdown that coincided with the Boston Marathon bombing. But the same sport that brought her to her knees as her life fell apart, also offered her a path back to finding love for competitive running – and love for herself.
